  2. "Nobody Wants to Eat Them Alive:" Ethical Dilemmas and Dual Media Narratives on Domestic Rabbits as Pets and Commodity

    Contributor(s):: Gayane F. Torosyan, Brian Lowe

    Using semiotic analysis, this study explores changes occurring in the societal perception of rabbits as farm animals as juxtaposed to their increasing popularity as domestic companions. This study is based on a preliminary hypothesis that rabbits are increasingly perceived and portrayed in media...

  3. Animal Shelter Programs and Policies

    Contributor(s):: Edwin J. Sayres

    A discussion of policies and programs that, ideally, should be followed by humane societies in the operation of shelters and the limitations that are imposed by finances, local circumstances, and other factors is a substantial undertaking. I would like, first, to give you some background...

  4. Zinc phosphide rodenticide reduces cotton rat populations in Florida sugarcane

    Contributor(s):: Nicholas R. Holler, David G. Decker

    Rodents cause extensive damage to sugarcane (Saccharum spp. hybrids) in southern Florida (Samol 1972). Losses have been estimated as high as $235/ha (Lefebvre et al. 1978). Cotton rats (Sigmodon hispidus) and roof rats (Rattus rattus) are responsible for most of the damage (Holler et al. 1981)....

  5. Cougar predation on livestock in New Mexico, January 1983 through June 1984

    Contributor(s):: Gary A. Littauer, Ronald J. White

    A telephone survey was conducted in which the objective was to obtain information from the entire population of livestock producers in New Mexico who had losses to cougars (Felis concolor) in 1983 and the first six months of 1984. A total of 103 ranchers reported losses in 1983 and 60 reported...

  6. A novel strategy for pocket gopher control

    Contributor(s):: Michael E.R. Godfrey

    Current techniques for the control of pocket gophers use traps, fumigants or toxic baits. Trapping and fumigation are labor intensive and seldom effective in giving more than short-term relief. Toxic baiting usually uses baits that are rapidly degraded and although the resident gopher may be...

  7. Plastic visual barriers were ineffective at reducing recolonization rates of prarie dogs

    Contributor(s):: Scott E. Hygnstrom

    Two plastic visual barriers were ineffective in controlling expansion of 7 active black-tailed prairie dog (Cynomys ludovicianus) colonies and recolonization of 7 toxicant-treated sections of colonies. Barriers constructed with Sno-Strap, a 15.2- cm wide band of high-tensile polyethylene plastic,...

    Contributor(s):: Johnson, S. W.

  11. Animal welfare: Proceedings of the Animal Welfare Sessions, 24th World Veterinary Congress, Rio de Janeiro, 1991

    Probably as a sign of the times, the World Veterinary Association's Animal Welfare Committee has published its conference proceedings for the first time. The papers cover the topic from most angles: ethology, legislation, laboratory animal welfare, transport of animals, public policy, human and...

  12. Animals, health and quality of life: professional development forum.

  13. Human-cow interactions: production effects

    Contributor(s):: Grandin, T.

    Behaviour of cows towards herdsmen is reviewed, with reference to fear memory formation; place-specific fear; introducing heifers to the milking parlour; effect of veterinary treatment; memory; locking of stanchions and stress.

  14. Physical planning of intensive systems of beef cattle using systematic layout planning as an analytical tool and its relationship with animal well-being

    Contributor(s):: Guimaraes, M. C. C., Inoue, K. R. A., Bueno, M. M., Baeta, F. C., Tibirica, A. C. G., Tinoco, I. F. F.

    The intensification of animal production systems suggests that the future of production is not the increase of the herd, but the increase of productivity. The main goal of facility design is to provide space for a specific purpose, and to provide optimal conditions for its development;...

  15. The influence of the human-animal interaction in the milking parlour on the behaviour, heart-rate and milk yield of dairy cows

    Contributor(s):: Knierim, U., Waran, N. K.

    This study addressed questions regarding the quality of human-cow interactions in the modern milking parlour, and whether in this situation cows still react differently to different milkers.

  16. Cruelty toward cats: a different kind of abuse

    Contributor(s):: Lockwood, R.

  17. Managing separation anxiety: an evidence-based approach

    Contributor(s):: Neilson, J. C.

  18. Evaluation of the relationship between milkers and dairy cows and its effect on animal welfare

    Contributor(s):: Salaberry, X., Huertas, S., Cesar, D., Piaggio, L., Gil, A.

    Animal fear towards people can be very stressful, making animal handling difficult and dangerous. The way animals are handled, absence of food, milking parlour conditions and presence of human beings constitute a special stimulus to the animal. If it is positive, fear diminishes and the capacity...

  19. The human-animal bond: societal obligations in practice-past, present, and future
