  4. Evaluation of an innovative approach for sensory enrichment in zoos: semiochemical stimulation for captive lions ( Panthera leo)

    Contributor(s):: Martinez-Macipe, M., Lafont-Lecuelle, C., Manteca, X., Pageat, P., Cozzi, A.

    Despite improvements in zoo housing and management conditions over the last years, zoo animals may still present undesirable behaviours, such as aggression, stereotypies, boredom and a general absence of natural behaviours. In order to improve animal welfare, researchers are constantly looking...

  6. Caged Cats: Private Ownership of Lions and Tigers

    Contributor(s):: Adele Young

    Ohio has traditionally had very few restrictions on animal ownership, exotic or domestic. The lax laws lead the worst puppy mill owners, driven out of other states by legislation and inspections, to settle in Ohio as a safe harbor. Prior to January 1, 2014, private big cat ownership in Ohio...

  7. How the Ban on Lion Hunting Killed the Lions: Mikkel Legarth at TEDxCopenhagen

    Contributor(s):: Bashaw, M. J., Kelling, A. S., Bloomsmith, M. A., Maple, T. L.

    Tigers and lions in the wild are nocturnal nonhuman animals who may hunt and mate opportunistically during daylight hours. In captivity, they spend most time on exhibit sleeping or pacing. To better understand their activity budget, this study examined the daily behavior patterns of 2 Sumatran...

  13. Human and ecological risk factors for unprovoked lion attacks on humans in southeastern Tanzania

    Contributor(s):: Kushnir, Hadas, Leitner, Helga, Ikanda, Dennis, Packer, Craig

    Lions (Panthera leo) have attacked over 1,000 people in Tanzania since 1990.

In Tanzania and Kenya much of this work employs a human-wildlife conflict perspective and is based in Maasai areas, where many of...

    Contributor(s):: Altman, J. D., Gross, K. L., Lowry, S. R.

    Nonhuman animals in captivity manifest behaviors and physiological conditions that are not common in the wild. Lions in captivity face problems of obesity, inactivity, and stereotypy. To mediate common problems of captive lions, this study implemented a gorge and fast feeding schedule that better...
