  2. Animal Experimentation as a Form of Rescue

    Contributor(s):: Alexander Zambrano Mr.

    In this paper I explore a new approach to the ethics of animal experimentation by conceiving of it as a form of rescue. The notion of rescue, I suggest, involves some moral agent(s) performing an action or series of actions, whose end is to prevent or alleviate serious harm to another party, harm...

  5. Training success in group-housed long-tailed macaques ( Macaca fascicularis) is better explained by personality than by social rank

    Contributor(s):: Wergard, E. M., Westlund, K., Spangberg, M., Fredlund, H., Forkman, B.

    Using training to prepare laboratory animals for biomedical research is one important behavior management task. With increased knowledge about factors influencing training success, training programs may be optimized, resulting in a refinement of primate husbandry. Even when animals are trained...

  10. Citizens, consumers and animals: what role do experts assign to public values in establishing animal welfare standards?

    Contributor(s):: Degeling, C., Johnson, J.

    The public can influence animal welfare law and regulation. However what constitutes 'the public' is not a straightforward matter. A variety of different publics have an interest in animal use and this has implications for the governance of animal welfare. This article presents an ethnographic...
