Capture myopathy appears primarily when wild animals are captured. The important signs of CM are an enormous increase in body temperature, muscle spasms, stiffness lameness, recumbent, the appearance of dark red colored urine and finally, ends with Death. Large muscles of the hind limb affected commonly. It is very difficult to treat once clinical signs become apparent. The condition carries a grave prognosis.
