Why don’t animal control officers use rubber bullets instead of darts?

Update:

You think darts calm animals down and rubber bullets would piss them off? DARTS piss off animals! The only realistic depiction of a how a dart affects an animal was in Jurassic World: The Fallen Kingdom, where the dart caused the velociraptor to become violent and attack a guy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jwnPI-d36vU&t=1m13... Those movies where a person or animal is tranquilized and immediately starts acting tipsy are bullshitting you.

    Please tell me you did not just ask such as a stupid question

    Animal control officers will use a tranquilzer dart, to put the animal to sleep, this way it can safely be transported to another location where it is safe and not a threat to others.

    A rubber bullet would only agitate the animal, causing it to attack the animal control officer.

    Darts tranquilize an animal so it can be captured safely without harming it. Rubber bullets can kill and it is used mainly to disburse ritoers. It either kills an animal or it drives the animal away, the exact opposite of why people use tranquilizers.

    Rubber bullets are to disperse. Animal control does not want to disperse animals. 

    The darts have a tranquilizer. 

    Jurassic Park/world are fiction. They also got their dinosaurs all wrong. Also, trex lived closer to us than it lived to the Jurassic LOL

    I cannot believe the incredible stupidity of this question. 'Jurassic Park' is fiction.

    If you shot a wild animal with a rubber bullet you are going to achieve nothing other than to anoy it putting yourself and others in danger.

    Obviously wild animals do not like being darted but the dart contains a drug that tranquillizes the animal. It is then safe for people to handle or transport it.

    Rubber bullets do nothing to calm the animal down or tranquilize it. 

    On the contrary,  it would probably piss it off making it more  prone to attack you.

    Animals are tough, rubber bullets would make them more pissed off, which means making them more dangerous. Dates on the other hand don't really harm the animal and work wast to put them to sleep. Darts=less chance of the animal becoming enraged
