    Cat containment is a prominent cat management issue in Australia that provokes strong, and sometimes opposing, points of view. The aim of this study was to explore beliefs and attitudes towards containment in cat owner and non-owner groups, and to examine cat containment practices in owners. A...

  4. Why and how should we use environmental enrichment to tackle stereotypic behaviour? (Special Issue: Conservation, enrichment and animal behavior.)

    | Contributor(s):: Mason, G., Clubb, R., Latham, N., Vickery, S.

    This paper summarises recent findings on the causation of stereotypic behaviours and other abnormal repetitive behaviours (ARBs) in captive animals: primarily motivational frustration and/or brain dysfunction, with possible contributory roles also being played by habit-formation and 'coping'...

  6. Workaholic ferrets: does a two-chamber consumer demand study give insight in the preferences of laboratory ferrets ( Mustela putorius furo)?

    | Contributor(s):: Reijgwart, M. L., Vinke, C. M., Hendriksen, C. F. M., Meer, M. van der, Schoemaker, N. J., Zeeland, Y. R. A. van

    Although provision of environmental enrichment is an effective tool to refine laboratory animal experiments, it is currently unknown which enrichments ferrets prefer. This study aimed to assess the suitability of a closed economy, two-chamber consumer demand set-up to determine ferrets'...

  8. Zoo playgrounds: a source of enrichment or stress for a group of nearby cockatoos? A case study

    | Contributor(s):: Collins, C. K., Marples, N. M.

    There is increasing evidence that in some circumstances, zoo visitors may be aversive stimuli to nonhuman animals housed in zoos. Yet, most previous research has focused on primates with little attention given to numerous other species who are housed in zoos. The focus animal of this project was...
