Animal Welfare Science, Husbandry and Ethics
By Mark Fisher
The symbiotic relationship of man and non-human animals is the result of a long intertwined history of the evolution of biological, social and cultural needs. This book explores the development of that relationship. The use, abuse, care, dedication and devotion that have been part of our history living with other animals.
Complex, changing and with competing demands the issue of animal welfare can be seen as a `wicked' one, with poor animal welfare reflective of a poor system. The aim of this broad survey of animal welfare is to understand why those animal-keeping practices are the way they are and what we need to do to change them. This book will be of interest to researchers, workers and students of animal welfare and anyone interested in exploring the relationship of man and animals.
