As for bigger animals, you have to put them to sleep and Fulton them.

One of the new features in Metal Gear Solid V is catching animals, which are held in your private zoo in Mother Base. There are 47 species to catch and there is an achievement/trophy called Conservation that you obtain for catching all of them. There are three ways to catch animals.

  • Put them to sleep and Fulton them - This way you can catch the biggest animals, like for example sheep or zebras. Remember that some of the animals (bears, wolves, jackals) will be aggressive towards the hero. The best way is to try to avoid confrontation and shoot a burst of non-lethal bullets when staying on the move.
  • Put them to sleep and pick them up - You can use this method with smaller types of animals, like for example crows. After you use non-lethal bullets, just approach the animal and pick it up.
  • Using Capture Cage - This method has only advantages. The animals are caught automatically. Moreover, every time you reach the main map, you obtain new Capture Cages and you can set up more of them. After the mission ends or after you return to mobile command center, you can see a list of all the animals that you caught.

The table below shows the list of animals that you can catch. The second column provides information on where to look for a certain species. You can track your progress in your iDroid. Select Mother Base tab in the main menu, then Database, Encyclopedia and then Wild Animals.
