Transcript of Introduction to Animal Welfare 1.0

Introduction to Animal Welfare
What Does Animal Welfare Mean To Us?!
Why is this
module important?
What I think
We have
chosen
to domesticate animals, making us
responsible
for their welfare. Our
greater intelligence
and
complete control
of their lives mean we have an
unavoidable duty of care
.
Learning from
the Past
People argue/have argued that those of different ethnicity,
class, gender, children and those with disabilities are
less able to suffer...
Can you think of a few ways in which this type of thinking could allow us to abuse our power over animals in our care?
Activity
Activity
Welfare Bingo!
The Selfish
Approach
Even if you don't
care
about how animals feel,
animals don't
thrive
when their welfare is compromised.
Activity
The Spiritual
Approach
Write down
5
general things you think animals need to have good welfare.

The Secret to Success...
Normally, I will direct you towards a particular chapter in your recommended reading list that you should read that afternoon in preparation for the next seminar.
Reasons to Look After Students
"Students don't feel as much as lecturers do, because we are higher beings. Therefore, I can demand that you work like a dog for your degree and put you up in the cheapest horrible housing."
"Students are clearly sentient beings. We should care for them while they study and make sure they are coping with their work load."
Reasons to Look After Students B
"It's too much work looking after students. Just ignore their needs."
"How we care for our students reflects our compassion and worth as Hartpury staff. If we care badly for students, how badly will the animals here be treated?"
Reasons to look after students C
We should charge the most in fees we can get away with and give the students as little as possible to make our profit margines huge!
We should give the students loads of great resources so they love being here. Then they'll work well, get good grades and tell their friends which will get more students applying next year and make us look good.
Food/ good nutrition
Water/hydration
Shelter/warmth
Companionship
Protection from
predation/bullying
Stimulation
Space to move & behave normally
Pain relief
Medicine
Euthanisation/
culling
Good death at slaughter
Contact with mother during development
But, suffering is a
unique
and
private
experience. It's difficult enough to assess in other humans who can articulate their feelings to others and much more so in non-verbal animals.
That's why we need to be
informed
,
skilled
and
compassionate
to meet the needs of
animals in our care
This is to allow you to get more detail on the material I've just covered and have time to ask any questions you have at the next seminar.
Activity
This is what I aim to help you
explore & gain confidence
in through this module.
You cannot get top marks without reading outside of lectures. Marks are awarded for you developing your understanding by yourself and bringing fresh ideas to your work.
This attitude allowed/allows them justify terrible acts.
How great do you want
your
nation to be...
How do you feel the UK compares
with other countries in:
the EU
Asia
Third world countries?
Can you think of a few ways in
which poor welfare
might impact on profits at a:
Zoo
Farm
Competitive equestrian yard?
This mean reduced
yields
and therefore,
profits.
In your opinion, which animal group is most
likely to suffer from poor welfare:
Farm
Performance
Companion
Zoo
Lab
