Veterinarians to test contraceptive vaccine in wild dogs

06/21/2013 | USA Today

Under the program, veterinarians will capture 300 wild female dogs and administer the government vaccine GonaCon. The animals will also be microchipped, collared and tattooed before being released. They'll be recaptured after a year to assess their response to the vaccine. The research is a collaboration between the USDA National Wildlife Research Center and Oklahoma-based Spay First.
