FREEMAN Y POLES
Dogs, Wolves and Coyotes
Dr. Mark Johnson of Global Wildlife Resources introduced the Y pole to the animal welfare community in 2008. It is an essential tool for difficult to manage dogs within a facility and also for wildlife professionals working with fractious canids such as wolves and coyotes. The Y pole is only effective for restraining animals which are already cornered or captured, but not yet safe enough to handle. The Y pole is a humane tool to gently control an animal. It allows practitioners to perform simple hands-on procedures such as:
- Additional physical restraint
- Injecting vaccinations, antibiotics, or anesthesia
- Partial physical examinations and minor treatment of wounds
- Made with rust-resistant thicker aluminum for extra durability

“Great design of the Y Pole. I could not believe the ease I had with restraining the coyote pups. On the sixth and seventh pup I felt like an old pro being able to guide the pole perfectly. The interesting observation was the coyotes are still small enough that they could have squeezed their heads out easily but the design of the Y Pole worked without a hitch submitting them”
