  1. Cuttlefish in captivity: an investigation into housing and husbandry for improving welfare

    Contributor(s):: Tonkins, B. M., Tyers, A. M., Cooke, G. M.

    The European cuttlefish ( Sepia officinalis) is often kept in public aquaria, is becoming more common in aquaculture, and is also the most frequently used cephalopod in European research. Since 1st January 2013, all cephalopods ( Mollusca) have been protected under UK/EU law (A(SP)A 1986,...

  2. Use of outdoor ranges by laying hens in different sized flocks

    Contributor(s):: Gebhardt-Henrich, S. G., Toscano, M. J., Frohlich, E. K. F.

    In studies assessing outdoor range use of laying hens, the number of hens seen on outdoor ranges is inversely correlated to flock size. The aim of this study was to assess individual ranging behavior on a covered (veranda) and an uncovered outdoor run (free-range) in laying hen flocks varying in...

  6. Human-marmoset interactions in a city park

    Contributor(s):: Leite, G. C., Duarte, M. H. L., Young, R. J.

    Urban wildlife, frequently, comes into contact with human city dwellers and these interactions can be viewed positively or negatively by people. In the city of Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais, Brazil) many city parks have groups of black-tufted marmosets (Callithrix penicillata), which interact with...

  7. The relationships between temperament during routine handling tasks, weight gain and facial hair whorl position in frequently handled beef cattle

    Contributor(s):: Olmos, G., Turner, S. P.

    A relationship has been described between facial hair whorl position and temperament in infrequently handled beef cattle when both traits were measured on categorical scales. Hair whorl position has also been found to relate to daily weight gain in dairy heifers. Using both a categorical scale...

  8. A note on the consistency and specificity of lambs' responses to a stockperson and to their photograph in an arena test

    Contributor(s):: Tallet, C., Veissier, I., Boivin, X.

    Understanding how farm animals perceive their stockperson is a major challenge, especially for artificially reared animals which are known to show strong attraction to humans. Replacing the stockperson by its photograph in an arena test could be a useful method for standardising human stimuli....

  9. Validating techniques to sample behaviour of confined, young pigs

    Contributor(s):: Arnold-Meeks, C., McGlone, J. J.

    In ten 1-hour segments of videotaped behaviour of 20 swine, half of the segments showed the behaviour of recently re-grouped and aggressive pigs and the remaining segments were of the later socially-stable groups. Attack, feeding, drinking, lying, moving and standing were recorded. Time-sampling...

  10. Tourists' effects on drivers of working Asian elephants

    Contributor(s):: Hart, L. A.

    A growing wildlife tourist industry in Asia sometimes includes the use of elephants to transport tourists. Elephant drivers are responsible for the safe management of their elephants while loading, transporting, and unloading tourists for rides to view wildlife. This study sought to investigate...
