Clouded Leopard Kennel Training
In preparation for tomorrow's artificial insemination attempt, I did a brief review of Raja's kenneling behavior. Raja kenneled daily for many years when he was one of our program animals handled for presentations. But that hasn't been the case for a long time. Now, the only time he needs to kennel is when we need to anesthetize him for a medical procedure. Amazingly, despite what should be a pretty negative association with the kennel, he is still always eager to participate. Learn why by checking out this video of our session:

Today we gave Josie her injection to stimulate ovulation. We plan to anesthetize Raja first thing in the morning to collect semen. If all looks good we will start on Josie around noon. I'll keep you posted...
