This function is just a wrapper for `rgamma`

which can be used in conjuction with `simCapture`

to simulate capture data where the rates are drawn from a gamma distribution

1 | ```
drawCapRatesGamma(shape, rate)
``` |

`shape` |
Shape parameter of gamma distribution |

`rate` |
Rate parameter of gamma distribution |

This function returns a function which can be used as an argument for `simCapture`

A function which takes the number of capture rates to draw as an argument
