  1. Review of Wildlife Hazard Mitigation Techniques on General Aviation Airports

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Robert J. Lewis, Joe N. Caudell

    Large commercial airports, also known as Part 139 airports, are required by federal regulation to monitor and control wildlife activity. Due to the regulatory nature of 14 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 139.337, and the size and scope of these airports, there is sufficient funding to...

  2. On-farm factors associated with cross-sucking in group-housed organic Simmental dairy calves

    | Contributor(s):: Größbacher, Verena, Winckler, Christoph, Leeb, Christine

    In EU organic dairy farming, group housing of calves is required after the first week. Especially in Simmental herds, this is perceived as a risk factor for cross-sucking (CS), i.e. sucking the udder-region or the scrotal area or any other body part of another calf, which may reflect frustrated...

  3. Working with Animals

     Fact sheet on working with animals produced by the Women’s Occupational Health Resource Center (WOHRC). The WOHRC (1979-1987) was a research and training program devoted to identifying and better understanding hazards faced by women workers. WOHRC was housed in Columbia’s School...

  4. Moral Panic, Risk or Hazard Society — the Relevance of a Theoretical Model and Framings of Maidan Dogs in Chisinau and Bucharest

    | Contributor(s):: Adriana Mica

    The study analyses the dynamics of public debate surrounding the issue of maidan [stray] dog population control strategies in Moldavia and Romania. The comparison takes as its point of reference two episodes of moral panic and discusses the applicability of the theoretical models of moral panic,...

  5. Integrating mammalian hazards with management at U.S. civil airports: a case study

    | Contributor(s):: Biondi, Kristin M., Belant, Jerrold L., Martin, James A., DeVault, Travis L., Wang, Guiming

  6. A tool for the evaluation of slaughter horse welfare during unloading

    | Contributor(s):: Messori, S., Visser, E. K., Buonanno, M., Ferrari, P., Barnard, S., Borciani, M., Ferri, N.

    This study aimed to develop a scientific and practical tool to be used to assess horse welfare after commercial transport over long journeys. A set of physical, behavioural and environmental measures was selected, covering welfare aspects of both transport and unloading procedures. The protocol...

  7. Looking for moral responsibility in ownership: a way to deal with Hazards of GMOs

    | Contributor(s):: Robaey, Z.

    Until now, the debates around genetically modified seeds in agriculture have converged towards two main issues. The first is about hazards that this new technology brings about, and the second is about the ownership of seeds and the distribution of their economic benefits. In this paper, I...

  8. Behavior of a solitary sociable female bottlenose dolphin ( Tursiops truncatus ) off the coast of Kent, southeast England

    | Contributor(s):: Eisfeld, S. M., Simmonds, M. P., Stansfield, L. R.

    This article provides a report of the behavior of a solitary sociable dolphin studied on the southeast coast of England in 2007. This is the first study of its kind in which behavior of such a nonhuman animal was systematically studied. By the time of this study, this young female was highly...

  9. Effects of stocking rate on measures of efficacy and welfare during carbon dioxide gas euthanasia of young pigs

    | Contributor(s):: Fiedler, K. J., Parsons, R. L., Sadler, L. J., Millman, S. T.

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of chamber stocking rate on facets of animal welfare and efficacy during gas euthanasia of young pigs ( Sus scrofa domesticus). Crossbred pigs (390 neonatal and 270 weaned) designated for euthanasia at production farms were randomly assigned...

  10. Relationships between young stallions' temperament and their behavioral reactions during standardized veterinary examinations

    | Contributor(s):: Peeters, M., Verwilghen, D., Serteyn, D., Vandenheede, M.

    Horse handling and veterinary examination can induce hazardous stress reactions. Such reactions occur especially in young and less-trained horses, particularly stallions, and make their handling a risk for breeders, grooms, and medical staff. Moreover, these stressful situations will affect the...

  11. Assessing the safety of collars used to attach predation deterrent devices and ID tags to pet cats

    | Contributor(s):: Calver, M. C., Adams, G., Clark, W., Pollock, K. H.

  12. Hazards to wildlife associated with underground strychnine baiting for pocket gophers

    | Contributor(s):: Paul L. Hegdal, Thomas A. Gatz

    Under an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) contract, we evaluated the hazards associated with strychnine baiting for pocket gophers (Geomys bursarius) with the burrow-builder. On the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge, Minnesota, we treated 662 ha (1638 acres) with 0.5 percent...

  13. Metoclopramide hydrochloride did not prevent 1080-induced vomiting in coyotes

    | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey S. Green

    Vomiting is a characteristic, although undesirable effect when using Compound 1080 (sodium monofluoroacetate) as a method of predator control for coyotes. Compound 1080 meat baits with (treatment) and without (control) an antiemetic, metoclopramide hydrochloride (MH), were fed to captive coyotes...

  18. Pets, depression and long-term survival in community living patients following myocardial infarction

    | Contributor(s):: Friedmann, E., Thomas, S. A., Son, H. S.

    Evidence supports the contribution of depression, anxiety, and poor social support to mortality of hospitalized myocardial infarction (MI) patients. The contribution of depression to survival is independent of disease severity. Pet ownership, a non-human form of social support, has also been...

  19. Fear reactions in trained and untrained horses from dressage and show-jumping breeding lines

    | Contributor(s):: Borstel, U. U. K. von, Duncan, I. J. H., Lundin, M. C., Keeling, L. J.

    Horses' fear reactions are hazardous to both horses and human beings, but it is not clear whether fear is influenced more by training or by other factors such as genetics. The following study was designed to detect differences between young, untrained (U) and older, well-trained (T) horses of...
