  6. Evaluation of a novel rodenticide: acute sub-lethal effects of a methaemoglobin-inducing agent

    Contributor(s):: Quy, R. J., Gibson, T. J., Lambert, M. S., Eason, C. T., Gregory, N. G.

    In a series of experiments the welfare of para-aminovalerophenone (PAVP) sub-lethally poisoned rats ( Rattus norvegicus) was assessed. The experiments: (i) examined the acute methaemoglobin (MetHb) profile over time; (ii) refined the LD50 estimate for PAVP in adult female rats; (iii) developed...

  7. Evaluation of a novel rodenticide: welfare assessment of fatal methaemoglobinaemia in adult rats ( Rattus norvegicus)

    Contributor(s):: Gibson, T. J., Quy, R. J., Eason, C. T., Gregory, N. G.

    This study assessed the welfare of rats ( Rattus norvegicus) poisoned with a lethal dose of the methaemoglobin (MetHb) inducing compound para-aminovalerophenone (PAVP). Twenty rats were orally gavaged with either PAVP (treated) or the vehicle only (control). Spontaneous and evoked behaviours were...

    Attempts to control cougar ( Puma concolor) and culpeo fox ( Pseudalopex culpaeus) populations in Patagonia through poisoning, negatively affects grey foxes ( Pseudalopex griseus) and many other non-target species. It is therefore advisable to develop selective predator control methods. Among a...

  13. Pindone for rabbit control: efficacy, residues and cost

    Contributor(s):: Peter C. Nelson, Graham J. Hickling

    Toxins are a major component of rabbit control campaigns in New Zealand, with sodium monofluoroacetate (1080) being the primary toxin in use since the 1950s. However, landowners can use 1080 only under the direct supervision of a licensed operator, and rabbit populations in regularly-poisoned...

  16. Exposing violences: using women's human rights theory to reconceptualize food rights

    Contributor(s):: Bellows, A. C.

    Exposing food violences (hunger, malnutrition, and poisoning from environmental mismanagement) requires policy action that confronts the structured invisibility of these violences. Along with the hidden deprivation of food is the physical and political isolation of critical knowledge on food...

  17. Minimizing harm in possum control operations and experiments in New Zealand

    Contributor(s):: Morris, M. C., Weaver, S. A.

    Pest control operations and experimentation on sentient animals such as the brushtail possum can cause unnecessary and avoidable suffering in the animal subjects. Minimizing animal suffering is an animal welfare goal and can be used as a guide in the design and execution of animal experimentation...

    Contributor(s):: Lambooij, E., Gerritzen, M. A., Engel, B., Hillebrand, S. J. W., Lankhaar, J., Pieterse, C.

    Behavioural responses to inhalation of gas were examined during exposure of broilers to different gas mixtures. 137 six-week-old broiler chickens were individually exposed in a gas chamber containing one of the following gas mixtures: 90% argon (Ar)/air, 30% carbon dioxide (CO2)/60% Ar/air or 40%...

  20. Pregnancy in goats does not influence intake of novel or familiar foods with or without toxins

    Contributor(s):: Knubel, B. F. R., Panter, K. E., Provenza, F. D.

    Some hypothesize that mammals decrease intake of foods that contain toxins during pregnancy to protect the fetus. We conducted a longitudinal study of feeding behavior to determine if pregnancy-related changes in food selection and intake occurred in goats. Goats eat modest amounts of toxic...
