  1. The Anthropomorphic Application of Gender Stereotypes to Horses

    Contributor(s):: Dashper, Katherine, Fenner, Kate, Hyde, Michelle, Probyn-Rapsey, Fiona, Caspar, Georgie, Henshall, Cathrynne, McGreevy, Paul

    Gender stereotypes shape human social interaction, often to the detriment of women and those who do not comply with normative expectations of gender. So far, little research has assessed the extent to which people apply gender stereotypes to animals, and the implications this may have for...

  2. Barren diets increase wakeful inactivity in calves

    Contributor(s):: Webb, Laura E., Engel, Bas, van Reenen, Kees, Bokkers, Eddie A. M.

    Inactivity is a vastly understudied behavioural category, which may reflect positive or negative affective states in captive or domesticated animals. Increased inactivity in barren-housed animals, in combination with an increased or decreased interest in stimuli, e.g. novel objects, can indicate...

  3. Does cribbing behavior in horses vary with dietary taste or direct gastric stimuli?

    Contributor(s):: Albright, Julia, Sun, Xiaocun, Houpt, Katherine

    Concentrated feed diets have been shown to drastically increase the rate of the cribbing, an oral stereotypy in horses, but the specific component causing the rise has not been identified. Furthermore, the mechanism through which feed affects cribbing has not been explored. In the first...

  4. Happiness is positive welfare in brown capuchins (Sapajus apella)

    Contributor(s):: Robinson, Lauren M., Waran, Natalie K., Leach, Matthew C., Morton, F. Blake, Paukner, Annika, Lonsdorf, Elizabeth, Handel, Ian, Wilson, Vanessa A. D., Brosnan, Sarah F., Weiss, Alexander

    Questionnaires that allow people who are familiar with individual animals to rate the welfare of these animals are an underutilised tool. We designed a 12-item welfare questionnaire and tested its reliability and associations with subjective well-being (SWB), locomotor stereotypy, and personality...

  5. Effect of environmental enrichment and composition of the social group on the behavior, welfare, and relative brain weight of growing rabbits

    Contributor(s):: Bozicovich, Thais F. M., Moura, Ana Silvia A. M. T., Fernandes, Simone, Oliveira, Aline A., Siqueira, Edson R. Siqueira

    The objective of the study was to investigate if environmental enrichment and the composition of the social group would affect the behavior and relative brain weight of growing rabbits. Rabbits (72 males and 72 females) were assigned to cages with or without enrichment and one of three social...

  6. Prevalence of stereotypies and its possible causes among captive Asian elephants (Elephas maximus) in Tamil Nadu, India

    Contributor(s):: Varadharajan, Vanitha, Krishnamoorthy, Thiyagesan, Nagarajan, Baskaran

    Animals in captivity are often confined in small barren enclosures, preventing adequate exercise, and socialization with conspecifics. Captivity is also known for depriving young individuals’ association with maternal relatives by weaning away from their mothers’ earlier than what their peers...

  7. Frothy saliva—A novel indicator to assess stereotypies in sows?

    Contributor(s):: Friedrich, Lena, Krieter, Joachim, Kemper, Nicole, Czycholl, Irena

    The present study aimed at introducing a reliable and more feasible indicator to evaluate stereotypies in sows in comparison with the ‘Welfare Quality® animal welfare assessment protocol for sows and piglets’. Therefore, the indicators for the assessment of stereotypies of the Welfare Quality®...

  8. Veganism and 'The Analytic Question'

    Contributor(s):: Adam Reid

    The (practical) dilemma I explore in this paper concerns two advocacy-oriented aims which, though not mutually exclusive per se, are nonetheless quite difficult for vegans to jointly satisfy in practice. The first concerns the need for individual vegans to rebuff (by example) certain familiar...

  9. Effects of Sheltering on Behavior and Fecal Corticosterone Level of Elderly Dogs

    Contributor(s):: Katsuji Uetake, Chu Han Yang, Aki Endo, Toshio Tanaka

    In Japan, the human population is aging rapidly, and the abandonment of dogs by the elderly people who have died or been hospitalized becomes a problem. It is hypothesized that elderly dogs have difficulty adapting to the novel circumstances when brought to an animal shelter. Therefore, the...

  10. Pit Bulls Today

    Contributor(s):: Hannah Nation

    The motivation for this research paper is to shed a new light on the drastic effects negative stereotypes have on breeds that are deemed aggressive in the media and public’s eye. It’s important to understand the full scope of the situation in our society and the consequences that come...

  11. Warmth and competence in animals

  12. Effects of stereotypic behaviour and chronic mild stress on judgement bias in laboratory mice

    Contributor(s):: Novak, Janja, Stojanovski, Klement, Melotti, Luca, Reichlin, Thomas S., Palme, Rupert, Würbel, Hanno

    Cognitive processes are influenced by underlying affective states, and tests of cognitive bias have recently been developed to assess the valence of affective states in animals. These tests are based on the fact that individuals in a negative affective state interpret ambiguous stimuli more...

  13. The Perception of Men and Women and the Pets They Own: Female Necessarily Equal Feline?

    Contributor(s):: Santina D. Masters, Steve Colletes

    While much research had investigated factors that influence the decisions io own pets, little is known about perceptions of people who own pets.
