I usually knock it out during the day or make a trap for it, lure it in and wait till night time at 20:30. Then I safely knock it out and put the kibble or mutton on it while it's still nighttime. If you do knock it out during the day you will lose the food in its inventory when it wakes up at 20:30, have to knock it out again, and put more food on it after it's out again. Bring plenty of tranq arrows and maybe another crossbow xD good luck! Once tamed they are funny with the sleep debt making them super duper slow, gain torpor during the day, and curl up into a cute ball. At night the eyes glow yellow and it is fast and powerful.
