  2. Effects of guest feeding programs on captive giraffe behavior

    Contributor(s):: Orban, D. A., Siegford, J. M., Snider, R. J.

    Zoological institutions develop human-animal interaction opportunities for visitors to advance missions of conservation, education, and recreation; however, the animal welfare implications largely have yet to be evaluated.

  3. Current opinion on maximizing veterinary profession growth and contributions

    Contributor(s):: Nimmanapalli, R., Donapaty, S. R.

    Veterinary profession sphere overlaps three major biology arenas namely agriculture, basic sciences, and human medicine.

  4. Validity and feasibility of human-animal relationship tests for on-farm welfare assessment in dairy goats

    Contributor(s):: Battini, M., Barbieri, S., Waiblinger, S., Mattiello, S.

    This study aims at establishing suitable tests to measure the quality of the Human-Animal Relationship (HAR) in dairy goats for on-farm welfare assessment protocols by evaluating the predictive validity of different categories of HAR tests and their feasibility in on-farm condition. Twelve...

  5. Children's beliefs about animal minds (Child-BAM): associations with positive and negative child-animal interactions

    Contributor(s):: Hawkins, R. D., Williams, J. M.

    Children and animals can have a great impact on each other's lives, yet little is known about the underpinnings of these relationships. Children's interactions with animals may be influenced by their belief in animal minds, that animals are sentient and experience thoughts and feelings. This...

  6. The human-animal relationship: a new field of socio-educational action

    Contributor(s):: Senent-Sánchez, Joan-Maria

    This article analyses the educational approaches towards the animal-human relationship which have been developed during the last 20 years. The article establishes a chain of states in that relationship and presents the reasons why those states are consecutive or, occasionally, simultaneous. Next,...

  8. Program animal welfare: using behavioral and physiological measures to assess the well-being of animals used for education programs in zoos

    Contributor(s):: Baird, B. A., Kuhar, C. W., Lukas, K. E., Amendolagine, L. A., Fuller, G. A., Nemet, J., Willis, M. A., Schook, M. W.

    This study investigates program animal welfare using both behavioral and physiological measures in two separate experiments. In Experiment One, we examined possible differences in behavior and fecal glucocorticoid metabolites (FGM) between education, exhibit and off-exhibit armadillos ( N=59)...

  9. Dos and don'ts of canine interaction: importance of responsible ownership

    Contributor(s):: Green, E.

  10. Farm animal welfare and children: a preliminary study building an attitude scale and evaluating an intervention

    Contributor(s):: Lakestani, N., Aguirre, V., Orihuela, A.

    Children are future consumers; they will impact future animal welfare standards. This pilot study evaluated a nonhuman animal welfare education program, building a farm animal attitude questionnaire for 8- to 10-year-old children. The educational material focused on the behaviors and needs of...

    Contributor(s):: Sammet, R., Andres, H., Dreesmann, D.

    Ants may serve as powerful model organisms for uncovering principles of insect biology and social behavior. The aim of this study was to provide a quantitative analysis of secondary-school students' perceptions and knowledge of ants. It was part of a longitudinal project based on the concept of...

  16. A conditioned response overrides social attraction in common carp: a possibility for low stress sorting strongly schooling fish?

    Contributor(s):: Mesquita, F. O., Borcato, F. L., Huntingford, F. A.

    In this study we investigated whether a conditioned response to a light cue can override the strong schooling tendency of common carp, with a view to identifying a possible system for low stress control of movement for captive fish. Carp were trained in groups of three to approach and bite a...

  17. Behavioural and physiological responses of domestic dogs ( Canis familiaris) to agonistic growls from conspecifics

    Contributor(s):: Wood, P. A., Bie, J. de, Clarke, J. A.

    Motivation-structural rule theory predicts that a sender producing harsh, low frequency sounds directed at a conspecific modifies the receiver's behaviour, in part, by communicating its willingness to escalate to an attack. Motivation-structural (MS) rules generally assume that receivers respond...

  18. GPS technology as a proxy tool for determining relationships in social animals: an example with African elephants

    Contributor(s):: Hacker, C. E., Horback, K. M., Miller, L. J.

    The potential application of GPS technology in determining relationships among social animals was addressed in this study of eight African elephants residing at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park in Escondido, CA, USA between 2009 and 2011. GPS coordinates were collected over nine 24 h periods from...

  19. The influence of neonatal environment on piglet play behaviour and post-weaning social and cognitive development

    Contributor(s):: Martin, J. E., Ison, S. H., Baxter, E. M.

    Research has shown that the domestic pig is highly playful throughout its development and that play is an important aspect of social and cognitive development. Therefore, the neonatal environment is fundamental to successful stimulation of play in neonatal pigs, which could have indirect and...

  20. Reasons for relinquishment and return of domestic cats ( Felis silvestris catus ) to rescue shelters in the UK

    Contributor(s):: Casey, R. A., Vandenbussche, S., Bradshaw, J. W. S., Roberts, M. A.

    Significant numbers of cats enter rescue and re-homing facilities each year, over half of which are relinquished directly by owners. Identifying the reasons why owners decide to give up their pet is an important step in the development of education strategies to encourage retention of cats by...
