Adrenocorticotrophin-induced stress response in captive vicunas ( Vicugna vicugna ) in the Andes of Chile
Contributor(s):: Bonacic, C., Macdonald, D. W., Villouta, G.
The vicuna is mainly used in two ways: wild captured, shorn and returned to the wild; or wild captured and maintained in captivity as part of a programme of sustainable use in the Andes of South America. Farming of wild vicunas has hitherto involved no assessment of their welfare. In this study a...
The effect of transport on cortisol, glucose, heart rate, leukocytes and body weight in captive-reared guanacos ( Lama guanicoe )
Contributor(s):: Zapata, B., Gimpel, J., Bonacic, C., Gonzalez, B. A., Riveros, J. L., Ramirez, A. M., Bas, F., Macdonald, D. W.
Current procedures for ranching and sustainable use of guanacos necessitate their transport. Transportation is a risky process for animals, and is a particular concern for wild-caught or semi-domesticated species such as the guanaco - a wild South American camelid species increasingly being...
The effectiveness of environmental enrichment on reducing stereotypic behaviour in two captive vicugna ( Vicugna vicugna )
Contributor(s):: Parker, M., Goodwin, D., Redhead, E., Mitchell, H.
Environmental enrichment by increasing foraging behaviour and providing food item choice are widely practised and generally accepted as effective methods for reducing stereotypic behaviour in captive animals. In this study, the effectiveness of increasing foraging patch choice and food item...
The physiological impact of wool-harvesting procedures in vicunas ( Vicugna vicugna )
Contributor(s):: Bonacic, C., Macdonald, D. W.
A current programme of wildlife utilization in the Andean region involves the capture of wild vicunas, their shearing, transport and, in some cases, captive farming. The effects of these interventions on the physiology, and thus welfare, of wild vicunas are unknown. As a first step to quantifying...
