  1. The role of the domestic cat in relation to game birds in the Willamette Valley, Oregon

    Contributor(s):: Nils Norman Nilsson

    The main purpose of this study was to ascertain the importance of the domestic cat in the Willamette Valley as a game bird predator; additional reasons were to learn more of its life history and food habits, and to analyze the popular belief that the cat, feral or non-feral, is the greatest...

  2. Cecil: A Moment or a Movement? Analysis of Media Coverage of the Death of a Lion, Panthera leo

    Contributor(s):: David W. Macdonald, Kim S. Jacobsen, Dawn Burnham, Paul J. Johnson, Andrew J. Loveridge

    The killing of a satellite-tagged male lion by a trophy hunter in Zimbabwe in July 2015 provoked an unprecedented media reaction. We analyse the global media response to the trophy hunting of the lion, nicknamed “Cecil”, a study animal in a long-term project run by Oxford...

  3. Impacts of Montana Public Wolf Hunting and Trapping on Tolerance and Acceptance of Gray Wolves Among Rural Resident Ranchers, Trappers, and Big Game Hunters

    Contributor(s):: Alia Winn Mulder

    The Public Trust Doctrine placed wildlife in trust, via state control and regulation, for the benefit of the people. Managing agencies that lose sight of the importance of public acceptance of predator policies and management actions may find themselves legislatively or judicially subverted. This...

  4. Whose Wildlife Is It Anyway ? How New York' s Fish and Game Statutes, Regulations, and Policies Endanger the Environment and Have Disenfranchised the Majority of the Electorate

    Contributor(s):: Jolene R. Marion

    Consistently, courts in the United States have held that the sovereign states hold wildlife in trust for the benefit of all the people. The legislatures, responding to a public concern that uncontrolled hunting was threatening the survival of indigenous species, invoked the states' police...

  5. The use of GPS data to identify calving behaviour of farmed red deer hinds: proof of concept for intensively managed hinds

    Contributor(s):: Asher, G. W., Wall, A. J., O'Neill, K. T., Littlejohn, R. P., Bryant, A., Cox, N.

    This study investigated the utility of GPS data for assigning individual calving dates and times for red deer hinds based on already known generalised movement patterns around parturition. Nineteen hinds expected to calve in early November were fitted with GPS neck collars two weeks before...

  6. Welfare of farmed musk deer: changes in the biological characteristics of musk deer in farming environments

    Contributor(s):: He, Lan, Li, LinHai, Wang, WenXia, Liu, Gang, Liu, ShuQiang, Liu, WenHua, Hu, DeFu

    Musk deer are an important economic wildlife resource, and long-term over-use has resulted in a sharp population decrease in the wild. Farming of musk deer is important to prevent the shrinking wild population from being hunted for their musk. Musk deer farming has a history of more than 60 years...

  7. Grazing intensity effects on vegetation, livestock and non-game birds in North Dakota mixed- grass prairie

    Contributor(s):: Eric D. Salo, Kenneth F. Higgins, Bob D. Patton, Kristel K. Bakker, William T. Barker

    We conducted studies in native prairie mixed-grass pastures in south~central North Dakota (U.S.A.) during 1989- 2003 to determine how different grazing intensities affected structural characteristics of vegetation, livestock production and the occurrence and density of grassland birds. Generally,...

  8. Enrichment for captive tigers (Panthera tigris): current knowledge and future directions

    Contributor(s):: Szokalski, M. S., Litchfield, C. A., Foster, W. K.

  9. The post-release fate of hand-reared orphaned bats: survival and habitat selection

    Contributor(s):: Serangeli, M. T., Cistrone, L., Ancillotto, L., Tomassini, A., Russo, D.

  10. The welfare of low-volume farm animals during transport and at slaughter: a review of current knowledge and recommendations for future research

    Contributor(s):: Bornett-Gauci, H. L. I., Martin, J. E., Arney, D. R.

  11. 'A fiendish outrage'? A study of animal maiming in East Anglia: 1830-1870

    Contributor(s):: Archer, J. E.

  12. Four types of activities that affect animals: implications for animal welfare science and animal ethics philosophy

    Contributor(s):: Fraser, D., MacRae, A. M.

    People affect animals through four broad types of activity: (1) people keep companion, farm, laboratory and captive wild animals, often while using them for some purpose; (2) people cause deliberate harm to animals through activities such as slaughter, pest control, hunting, and toxicology...

  13. The effect of environmental enrichment on play behaviour in white-lipped peccaries ( Tayassu pecari )

    Contributor(s):: Nogueira, S. S. C., Soledade, J. P., Pompeia, S., Nogueira Filho, S. L. G.

    Herds of white-lipped peccary (Tayassu pecari) have historically been kept in captivity in order to replace stocks lost to hunting however the lack of knowledge regarding their species-typical behaviour remains an impediment to understanding their captive needs. Environmental enrichment has been...

  14. Effects of vitamin C supplementation on the adrenocortical and tonic immobility fear reactions of Japanese quail genetically selected for high corticosterone response to stress

    Contributor(s):: Satterlee, D. G., Jones, R. B., Ryder, F. H.

    Japanese quail chicks (18 days of age), from a line genetically selected for high plasma corticosterone response to brief immobilization stress, were treated for 24 h with either untreated drinking water or with a vitamin C (1200 mg/l of ascorbic acid: AA) solution. The chicks were subsequently...

  15. Heart-rate telemetry in deer and sheep

  16. Effects of behaviour and handling on heart rate in farmed red deer

    Contributor(s):: Price, S., Sibly, R. M., Davies, M. H.

    The heart rate of farmed red deer hinds was affected by behaviour and handling, and the baseline heart rate changed seasonally. Heart rate was measured in 5 red deer during 14 different behaviours throughout the day in October, January and May. Baseline heart rate in May (85 beats/min) was some...

  17. Effects of isolation and mixing of social groups on heart rate and behaviour of red deer stags

    Contributor(s):: Pollard, J. C., Littlejohn, R. P., Suttie, J. M.

    The effects of visual and spatial isolation from other deer (Experiment 1), and of mixing with unfamiliar deer (Experiment 2) on the behaviour and heart rate of 16 yearling red deer stags, were measured. In each experiment, the deer were initially confined in an indoor pen for 1 min in the...

  19. Responses of red deer to restraint in a y-maze preference test

    Contributor(s):: Pollard, J. C., Littlejohn, R. P., Suttie, J. M.

    To determine whether a y-maze could be used to assess the relative aversiveness of handling treatments used for red deer and how the treatments could most effectively be presented, 24 castrated stags were subjected to 2 simple treatments. In one arm of a y-maze deer were briefly restrained in a...
