    This looks fun, but useless. I mean, if you have to inject a small animal, you could prolly grab it then just inject it like you normally would. If it's a tiger, well I know I'm not getting within 2 meters of a tiger, that's for sure.

    I have actually seen a bear being sedated by a tranquilizer. It was not done by a blow gun because that is highly inaccurate and most animals need to be hit in a specific place for it to be safe. It was done using a gun. The bear was fine afterwards, we were checking his fat content for a study

    You ever seen a grape destemmer? Because that would look really cool in slow mo, just a million spinny paddles in a cylinder blasting the grapes off of the vine. Really scary machine to be working with, but would be cool to see
