  1. Animal Welfare Knowledge, Attitudes, and Practices of Stockpersons in Kenya

    Contributor(s):: Wambui, Joseph, Lamuka, Peter, Karuri, Edward, Matofari, Joseph

    Contributor(s):: Vanheukelom, Valerie, Van Beirendonck, Sanne, Van Thielen, Jos, Driessen, Bert

    Surgical castration of male pigs is a practice that will probably be abandoned in Europe in the future because of general protest against pain in animals and a growing concern on (farm) animal welfare. Rearing entire males will therefore inevitably be integrated in the pig sector. In the present...

    Emerging zoonoses are a prominent global health threat. Human beliefs are central to drivers of emerging zoonoses, yet little is known about how people make inferences about risk in such scenarios. We present an inductive account of zoonosis risk perception, suggesting that beliefs about the...
