Effect of Capacity for Care on cat admission trends at the Guelph Humane Society, 2011–2015
Contributor(s):: Janke, Natasha, Berke, Olaf, Klement, Eyal, Flockhart, D. T. Tyler, Coe, Jason, Bateman, Shane
In recent years, there has been a growing concern regarding populations of cats who are homeless. Shelters are constantly overwhelmed by the influx of cats without caregivers and are seeking solutions to enhance positive outcomes for them. In 2014, the Guelph Humane Society implemented a...
A Comparison of Zoo Animal Behavior in the Presence of Familiar and Unfamiliar People
| Contributor(s):: Martin, Rosemary Anne, Melfi, Vicky
As recorded in domestic nonhuman animals, regular interactions between animals in zoos and keepers and the resulting relationship formed (human–animal relationship [HAR]) are likely to influence the animals' behaviors with associated welfare consequences. HAR formation requires that zoo...
The time budget of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) held in enriched tanks
| Contributor(s):: Nordgreen, J., Bjørge, M. H., Janczak, A. M., Hovland, A. L., Moe, R. O., Ranheim, B., Horsberg, T. E.
In order to understand the impact of different experimental and husbandry procedures on fish, and ensure that the behavioural and physiological needs of fish used in research are met, it is necessary to have detailed knowledge of their behaviour. This knowledge is largely lacking for Atlantic...
Effects of different systems of feeding supplements on time budgets of cows grazing restricted pasture allowances
| Contributor(s):: Hetti Arachchige, Anoma D., Fisher, Andrew D., Auldist, Martin J., Wales, William J., Jongman, Ellen C.
Farm systems that use a feed-pad for delivering mixed-rations to dairy cows are becoming more common in countries with primarily pasture-based dairy systems, such as Australia. However, feeding a ration on a feed-pad may alter cows’ key daily behaviours such as grazing, ruminating and resting,...
Stability of social hierarchy in growing female pigs and pregnant sows
| Contributor(s):: Parent, Jean-Philippe, Meunier-Salaün, Marie-Christine, Vasseur, Elsa, Bergeron, Renée
Conflicting results between dominance tests and repetitions of these tests over time in pigs may result from a lack of stability of their social hierarchy. The objectives of this study were to compare five methods to measure social hierarchy and to examine the stability of test results over time...
Quantifying human disturbance on antipredator behavior and flush initiation distance in yellow-bellied marmots
| Contributor(s):: Li, Chunwang, Monclús, Raquel, Maul, Terry L., Jiang, Zhigang, Blumstein, Daniel T.
Human disturbance may differentially affect the behavior of wild animals and such behavioral perturbations may have fitness consequences. To understand the effects of specific types of human disturbance on antipredator behavior, a behavior whose performance enhances survival, we studied...
In pursuit of “normal”: A review of the behaviour of cattle at pasture
| Contributor(s):: Kilgour, Robert J.
One of the “Five Freedoms” proposed by the Farm Animal Welfare Council in Great Britain is that animals should be free to express normal behaviour. For various domesticated species, the study of still-existing wild ancestors has been one approach in the definition of normal. However, for...
The behaviour of beef cattle at pasture
| Contributor(s):: Kilgour, Robert J., Uetake, Katsuji, Ishiwata, Toshie, Melville, Gavin J.
One of the Five Freedoms established by the British Farm Animal Welfare Council is the freedom for animals to express normal behaviour. However, for beef cattle, the major problem with this is to establish what constitutes “normal”. In the absence of surviving wild ancestors, the best that can be...
Agent-based modelling in applied ethology: An exploratory case study of behavioural dynamics in tail biting in pigs
| Contributor(s):: Boumans, Iris J. M. M., Hofstede, Gert Jan, Bolhuis, J. Elizabeth, de Boer, Imke J. M., Bokkers, Eddie A. M.
Understanding behavioural dynamics in pigs is important to assess pig welfare in current intensive pig production systems. Agent-based modelling (ABM) is an approach to gain insight into behavioural dynamics in pigs, but its use in applied ethology and animal welfare science has been limited so...
