A Family Business...

Wildlife & Animal Capture was founded by Mr. Tony Searle who started selling Dart Guns, Net Guns and a range of Cage and Foot Traps in 1987. Prior to this Tony spent 18 years as a Research Ranger in the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service (QNPWS). During this time he had hands on experience with the researching, capturing and trapping of virtually all species of fauna in Queensland.  Tony was involved in the design and formulation of a lot of the techniques and methods for the trapping and darting of deer and other animals and went on to attain the position of Chief Ranger in the QNPWS. 


Due to Tony’s poor health WAC was sold in 2020 to Mr. Peter Sargeant – owner of National Animal Handling and Husbandry – a family business based in Armidale NSW.  Having known Tony for well for over 35 years, Peter is committed to carrying forward Tony’s legacy and is looking to expand and provide the industry with products and services to find solutions for animal health management and handling needs.
