  1. The welfare and suitability of primates kept as pets

    Contributor(s):: Soulsbury, C. D., Iossa, G., Kennell, S., Harris, S.

    Amid growing concern about keeping exotic species as companion animals, nonhuman primates have been highlighted as inappropriate for private ownership. However, there has been no comprehensive review of the suitability of primates as pets, using a framework such as Schuppli and Fraser's (2000)....

  2. There's a rat in my room! Now what? Mice show no chronic physiological response to the presence of rats

    Contributor(s):: Meijer, M. K., Loo, P. L. P. van, Baumans, V.

    In general, guidelines on housing and care of animals in the laboratory state that rats and mice should not be housed in the same room. Mice may perceive rats as predators. Although one theory says this can cause stress, there is little scientific evidence to support this theory. In the wild,...

  3. Trends in sheltering and welfare at the Hawaiian Humane Society, Oahu, Hawaii

    Contributor(s):: McDowell, B., Burns, P., Lepczyk, C. A.

    One of the major goals of an animal welfare organization is to reduce the number of homeless, nonhuman animals in a community. In Hawaii, the Hawaiian Humane Society has provided numerous animal welfare services to work toward this goal, such as offering sterilizations and microchipping at...

  4. Utilization of matrix population models to assess a 3-year single treatment nonsurgical contraception program versus surgical sterilization in feral cat populations

    Contributor(s):: Budke, C. M., Slater, M. R.

    This study constructed matrix population models to explore feral cat population growth for a hypothetical population (a) in the absence of intervention; (b) with a traditional surgical sterilization-based trap, neuter, and return program; and (c) with a single treatment 3-year nonsurgical...

  5. Behavior of feral horses in response to culling and GnRH immunocontraception

    Contributor(s):: Ransom, J. I., Powers, J. G., Garbe, H. M., Oehler, M. W., Sr., Nett, T. M., Baker, D. L.

    Wildlife management actions can alter fundamental behaviors of individuals and groups, which may directly impact their life history parameters in unforeseen ways. This is especially true for highly social animals because changes in one individual's behavior can cascade throughout its social...

  6. Responses by wild house mice ( Mus musculus) to various stimuli in a novel environment

    Contributor(s):: Witmer, G. W., Snow, N. P., Moulton, R. S.

    House mice ( Mus musculus) pose a threat to the native flora and fauna on islands, and can cause significant damage wherever they have been introduced. Methods used to eradicate invasive rodents, like house mice, at high population densities may not be appropriate for intercepting them at lower...

  7. Using sterilization to change predation rates of wild coyotes: a test case involving pronghorn fawns

    Contributor(s):: Seidler, R. G., Gese, E. M., Conner, M. M.

    Surgical sterilization of coyotes ( Canis latrans) reduced their predation rate on domestic sheep. We investigated whether sterilizing coyotes would similarly change coyote predation rates on pronghorn antelope ( Antilocapra americana) neonates. From May 2006 to March 2008, we radio-collared 71...

  8. Attitudes toward animals: a study of Portuguese children

    Contributor(s):: Almeida, A., Vasconcelos, C., Strecht-Ribeiro, O.

    In this study we analyzed the attitudes toward different animals in 210 Portuguese children: 107 boys and 103 girls, aged between 8 and 10 years, attending the 3rd and 4th years of primary school. We used a questionnaire with two distinct parts. In the first part, the children were asked about...
