    Contributor(s):: Maxwell, N. B., Buchanan, C. G., Evans, N. P.

  4. Different responses of free-ranging wild guanacos (Lama guanicoe) to shearing operations: implications for better management practices in wildlife exploitation

    Contributor(s):: Taraborelli, P., Torres, M. M., Gregorio, P. F., Moreno, P., Rago, V., Panebianco, A., Schroeder, N. M., Ovejero, R., Carmanchahi, P.

  5. Potential Welfare Impacts of Chase and Capture of Small Cetaceans during Drive Hunts in Japan

    Contributor(s):: Vail, Courtney S., Reiss, Diana, Brakes, Philippa, Butterworth, Andrew

    Drive hunts are a method to herd, capture and kill small cetaceans (whales and dolphins) in coastal waters of some countries including Japan and the Faroe Islands. In Japan, these methods are often associated with the acquisition of live dolphins for international marine parks and aquaria. During...

  6. The captive imagination: inhumanity, animality, and Matthew Barney's Cremaster 2

    Contributor(s):: Sharma, D.

  7. Disposition of shelter companion animals from nonhuman animal control officers, citizen finders, and relinquished by caregivers

    Contributor(s):: Notaro, S. J.

    Many private not-for-profit humane societies have contracts with their local government entities to provide nonhuman animal control services that the law commonly requires the government to provide to its residents. These services normally have the humane organization providing either the total...

  8. Traumatic stress disorder observed in an adult wild captive wolf ( Canis lupus )

    Contributor(s):: Mallonee, J. S., Joslin, P.

    Tenino was an adult female wolf, born in the wild and placed into captivity at 1 year of age because of her participation in livestock depredation. Her method of capture, well documented, involved being darted twice by helicopter and translocated twice. This method of capture would have exposed...

  9. Captive bears in human-animal welfare conflict: a case study of bile extraction on Asia's bear farms

    Contributor(s):: Kikuchi, R.

  10. A framework for assessing the suitability of different species as companion animals

    Contributor(s):: Schuppli, C. A., Fraser, D.

  11. Ease of capture in lines of Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) subjected to contrasting selection for fear or sociability

    | Contributor(s):: Mills, A. D., Faure, J. M.

    Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) of lines, which have been subjected to contrasting selection for duration of the tonic immobility (TI) reaction or social reinstatement (SR) behaviour over many generations show corresponding differences in underlying fearfulness and sociality. As fearfulness...

  12. Straw collecting behaviour by pacas (Agouti paca) in captivity

    | Contributor(s):: Sabatini, V., Costa, M. J. R. P. da

    Agouti paca is both considered as a species vulnerable to extinction and recognised with the potential for domestication. In spite of this, its behaviour is poorly documented and captive breeding is mainly based on trial and error. The aim of the present research was to analyse whether different...

  13. Analysis of the movement and use of space of animals in confinement: the effect of sampling effort

    | Contributor(s):: Estevez, I., Christman, M. C.

    Spatial confinement imposes behavioural restrictions on animals because of limitations in movement and use of space. Group size variations, high animal densities and social factors may exacerbate these effects. A better understanding of space use by captive animals will permit us to design...

  14. Investigations into the stressfulness of harvesting broilers

    | Contributor(s):: Duncan, I. J. H., Kite, V. G.

    In laboratory experiments with chickens, human approach caused the least stress and remote restraint the most, while human approach plus manual restraint with or without lifting was intermediate. Manual catching and carrying was more stressful than mechanical herding and mechanical conveying....

  15. Body weight change as a measure of stress: a practical test

    | Contributor(s):: McLaren, G. W., Mathews, F., Fell, R., Gelling, M., Macdonald, D. W.

    We report on the efficacy of body weight change as a measure of trapping and handling stress in two species of wild small mammal: bank voles (Clethrionomys glareolus) and wood mice (Apodemus sylvaticus). We tested two hypotheses: (1) that weight change after capture and handling is related to the...

  16. Evaluation of the tranquilliser trap device (TTD) for improving the humaneness of dingo trapping

    | Contributor(s):: Marks, C. A., Allen, L., Gigliotti, F., Busana, F., Gonzalez, T., Lindeman, M., Fisher, P. M.

    Predation of sheep and cattle by the dingo (Canis lupus dingo) is implicated in significant stock losses throughout much of mainland Australia. Leg-hold traps are commonly used for dingo control and ways are sought to improve the humaneness of these devices. We evaluated the performance of the...

  17. Habituation, capture and relocation of Sykes monkeys ( Cercopithecus mitis albotorquatus ) on the coast of Kenya

    | Contributor(s):: Moinde, N. N., Suleman, M. A., Higashi, H., Hau, J.

    The objective of this project was to collect scientific data to assist in the development of guidelines for the humane relocation of threatened and endangered arboreal non-human primate species. A troop of 31 Lowland Sykes monkeys (Cercopithecus mitis albotorquatus) was habituated to fruit bait...

  18. Stress in wild-caught Eurasian otters ( Lutra lutra ): effects of a long-acting neuroleptic and time in captivity

    | Contributor(s):: Fernandez-Moran, J., Saavedra, D., Ruiz de la Torre, J. L., Manteca-Vilanova, X.

    As part of a translocation project, 28 Eurasian otters (Lutra lutra) were captured from the wild and transported to the Barcelona Zoo for veterinary evaluation, quarantine and intraperitoneal implantation of telemetry devices. Eleven animals were injected with the long-acting neuroleptic (LAN)...

  19. The effect of handling under anaesthetic on the recapture rate of wild ship rats ( Rattus rattus )

    | Contributor(s):: Prout, D. M., King, C. M.

    This paper describes a two-part study of small predators in New Zealand forests. First, during 12 days of live-trapping, 31 wild ship rats were captured, tagged and released: 9 were handled while anaesthetised using halothane and 22 were handled while conscious using gloves. There was a...

  20. 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...
