A literature review was carried out based on the main philosophical works by authors who...

  9. Investigating Unused Tools for the Animal Behavioral Diversity Toolkit

    Contributor(s):: Brereton, James Edward, Fernandez, Eduardo J.

    Behavioral diversity is a commonly used tool used to quantify the richness and evenness of animal behaviors and assess the effect of variables that may impact an animal’s quality of life. The indices used in behavioral diversity research, and the study subjects, have not been formally reviewed....

  10. Poor Welfare Indicators and Husbandry Practices at Lion (Panthera Leo) "Cub-Petting" Facilities: Evidence from Public YouTube Videos

    Contributor(s):: Chorney, S., DeFalco, A., Jacquet, J., LaFrance, C., Lary, M., Pirker, H., Franks, B.

    There is growing concern about captive lion hunting and breeding operations in South Africa, including cub-petting tourism. For the first time, we assess the quality of cub-petting facilities and code the stress behaviors of lion cubs when handled by tourists by analyzing four stress-related...

  11. Consumer Preferences for Animal Welfare in China: Optimization of Pork Production-Marketing Chains

    Contributor(s):: Liang, Yaoming, Cheng, Yu, Xu, Yanjie, Hua, Gengrong, Zheng, Zijian, Li, Hui, Han, Li

    Consumption demands for pork produced by farms that employ strategies to improve animal welfare (“animal welfare pork”) will be an important indicator for predicting domestic pig feeding standards and pork industry development. This paper analyzes consumer preferences for animal welfare pork...

  12. The Impacts of Colony Cages on the Welfare of Chickens Farmed for Meat

    Contributor(s):: Mace, Jenny L., Knight, Andrew

    There is growing interest in keeping meat chickens in modern colony cages (CCs) rather than conventional litter-floor barns. Suggested welfare improvements for chickens in such systems include reduced bodily lesions due to lower contact with flooring contaminated with faeces and urine, due to...

    Contributor(s):: Wilson, Charlotte H., Wyeth, Russell C., Spicer, John I., McGaw, Iain J.

    The wide geographic distribution, large size and ease of capture has led to decapod crustaceans being used extensively in laboratory experiments. Recently in the United Kingdom decapod crustaceans were listed as sentient beings, resulting in their inclusion in animal care protocols. Ironically,...

  15. Generalizability, Robustness and Replicability When Evaluating Wellbeing of Laboratory Mice with Various Methods

    Contributor(s):: Zechner, Dietmar, Schulz, Benjamin, Tang, Guanglin, Abdelrahman, Ahmed, Kumstel, Simone, Seume, Nico, Palme, Rupert, Vollmar, Brigitte

    An essential basis for objectively improving the status of animals during in vivo research is the ability to measure the wellbeing of animals in a reliable and scientific manner. Several non-invasive methods such as assessing body weight, burrowing activity, nesting behavior, a distress score and...

  16. Looking beyond the Shoal: Fish Welfare as an Individual Attribute

    Contributor(s):: Torgerson-White, Lauri, Sánchez-Suárez, Walter

    Welfare is an individual attribute. In general, providing captive nonhuman animals with conditions conducive to good welfare is an idea more easily applied when dealing with few individuals. However, this becomes much harder—if not impossible—under farming conditions that may imply high numbers...
