Novel endotheliotropic herpesviruses fatal for Asian and African elephants. (1/318)

A highly fatal hemorrhagic disease has been identified in 10 young Asian and African elephants at North American zoos. In the affected animals there was ultrastructural evidence for herpesvirus-like particles in endothelial cells of the heart, liver, and tongue. Consensus primer polymerase chain reaction combined with sequencing yielded molecular evidence that confirmed the presence of two novel but related herpesviruses associated with the disease, one in Asian elephants and another in African elephants. Otherwise healthy African elephants with external herpetic lesions yielded herpesvirus sequences identical to that found in Asian elephants with endothelial disease. This finding suggests that the Asian elephant deaths were caused by cross-species infection with a herpesvirus that is naturally latent in, but normally not lethal to, African elephants. A reciprocal relationship may exist for the African elephant disease.  (+info)

A survey of serum and dietary carotenoids in captive wild animals. (2/318)

Accumulation of carotenoids varies greatly among animal species and is not fully characterized. Circulating carotenoid concentration data in captive wild animals are limited and may be useful for their management. Serum carotenoid concentrations and dietary intakes were surveyed and the extent of accumulation categorized for 76 species of captive wild animals at Brookfield Zoo. Blood samples were obtained opportunistically from 275 individual animals immobilized for a variety of reasons; serum was analyzed for alpha- and beta-carotene, lutein + zeaxanthin, lycopene, beta-cryptoxanthin and canthaxanthin. Total carotenoid content of diets was calculated from tables and chemical analyses of commonly consumed dietary components. Diets were categorized as low, moderate or high in carotenoid content as were total serum carotenoid concentrations. Animals were classified as unknown, high, moderate or low (non-) accumulators of dietary cartenoids. Nonaccumulators had total serum carotenoid concentrations of 0-101 nmol/L, whereas accumulators had concentrations that ranged widely, from 225 to 35,351 nmol/L. Primates were uniquely distinguished by the widest range of type and concentration of carotenoids in their sera. Most were classified as high to moderate accumulators. Felids had high accumulation of beta-carotene regardless of dietary intake, whereas a wide range of exotic birds accumulated only the xanthophylls, lutein + zeaxanthin, canthaxanthin or cryptoxanthin. The exotic ungulates, with the exception of the bovids, had negligible or nondetectable carotenoid serum concentrations despite moderate intakes. Bovids accumulated only beta-carotene despite moderately high lutein + zeaxanthin intakes. Wild captive species demonstrated a wide variety of carotenoid accumulation patterns, which could be exploited to answer remaining questions concerning carotenoid metabolism and function.  (+info)

Natural and experimental oral infection of nonhuman primates by bovine spongiform encephalopathy agents. (3/318)

Experimental lemurs either were infected orally with the agent of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) or were maintained as uninfected control animals. Immunohistochemical examination for proteinase-resistant protein (prion protein or PrP) was performed on tissues from two infected but still asymptomatic lemurs, killed 5 months after infection, and from three uninfected control lemurs. Control tissues showed no staining, whereas PrP was detected in the infected animals in tonsil, gastrointestinal tract and associated lymphatic tissues, and spleen. In addition, PrP was detected in ventral and dorsal roots of the cervical spinal cord, and within the spinal cord PrP could be traced in nerve tracts as far as the cerebral cortex. Similar patterns of PrP immunoreactivity were seen in two symptomatic and 18 apparently healthy lemurs in three different French primate centers, all of which had been fed diets supplemented with a beef protein product manufactured by a British company that has since ceased to include beef in its veterinary nutritional products. This study of BSE-infected lemurs early in their incubation period extends previous pathogenesis studies of the distribution of infectivity and PrP in natural and experimental scrapie. The similarity of neuropathology and PrP immunostaining patterns in experimentally infected animals to those observed in both symptomatic and asymptomatic animals in primate centers suggests that BSE contamination of zoo animals may have been more widespread than is generally appreciated.  (+info)

Thyroid C-cell carcinoma with amyloid in a red fox (Vulpes vulpes schrenchki). (4/318)

An amyloid-producing medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) in a red fox (Vulpes vulpes schrenchki) bred in a zoo was examined using histopathologic and immunohistochemical techniques. The neoplastic cells had an ill-defined cytoplasmic membrane and abundant, finely granular eosinophilic cytoplasm, containing numerous argyrophilic granules. The neoplastic tissues were divided into various sizes by a vascular connective stroma, which was partly fibrovascular with broad areas of hyalinization containing varied amounts of amyloid. Immunohistochemically, neoplastic cells showed reactivity to anti-calcitonin, neuron-specific enolase, somatostatin, and keratin antibodies. However, amyloid in the stroma did not show immunoreactivity to the antibodies used. Histologic and immunohistochemical features of MTC in the present animal were analogous to those of the C-cell carcinoma derived from thyroid C cells (parafollicular cells) reported in humans and dogs.  (+info)

Nocardia nova causing pulmonary nocardiosis of black crakes (Limnocorax flavirostra). (5/318)

Natural nocardial infection has been reported in many different species including mammals and fish, but reports in birds remain uncommon. Eight juvenile Black Crakes (Limnocoraxflavirostra) died unexpectedly at the Basle Zoo. Necropsy revealed disseminated white, firm nodules, 1-3 mm in diameter, throughout the lung parenchyma. Histologically, the lungs contained multiple, often confluent granulomas with central necrosis. Delicate, gram-positive, 0.5- to 1.0-microm-wide, branching, occasionally beaded, filamentous organisms were visible in necrotic centers. These organisms were acid fast when stained with Fite-Faraco. No histologic lesions were seen in other organs. Nocardia nova was isolated from liver, spleen, kidney, and lung. Granulomatous and necrotizing nocardial pneumonia with agonal septicemia was diagnosed, suggesting an aerogenous infection. To our knowledge, this is the first reported epizootic outbreak of nocardiosis in birds, which is additionally unusual because it was caused by N. nova.  (+info)

Coxsackievirus B4 myocarditis in an orangutan. (6/318)

A 37-year-old female orangutan died at the zoological garden. Autopsy examination demonstrated severe coxsackievirus B4 myocarditis immunohistochemically as a cause of the death. Apoptosis of the cardiac muscle cells was observed using the TdT-mediated dUTP-biotin nick endo labeling method and was considered to play a role in the myocarditis. Congestion of the liver and both lungs due to cardiac failure was also observed. Coxsackievirus infection is found frequently in the Okinawan human population. The present orangutan's infection might have come from visitors who were allowed to go near the orangutan. Malignant tumors, severe suppurative infections, and intestinal parasite infections were not observed. Epstein-Barr virus DNA was detected in lymph nodes, but there was no Burkitt's lymphoma.  (+info)

Fatal measles virus infection in Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata). (7/318)

An outbreak of natural measles virus infection occurred in a group of Japanese macaques (Macaca fuscata). Over a period of 4 months, 12 of 53 Japanese macaques died following a 2-23-day history of anorexia, diarrhea, and dermatitis. The monkeys were kept in outdoor exhibits but had been moved temporarily into indoor caging and then transferred to new outdoor exhibits. Ten monkeys died while they were in temporary caging, and two monkeys died after they were moved to new outdoor exhibits. The diagnoses were made based on the results of histopathology, immunohistochemistry (IHC), in situ hybridization (ISH), and electron microscopy. Measles virus antigens were detected in the lung, stomach, skin, salivary gland, spleen, and lymph nodes. Tangled, tubular nucleocapsids compatible with paramyxovirus were noted in the lung tissue. As a result of immunosuppression following measles virus infection, various secondary infections including disseminated cytomegalovirus infection, adenoviral and bacterial pneumonia, and Candida albicans-associated gingivitis and esophagitis were noted. The primary infective source or the mode of infection could not be determined in this outbreak, but measles virus may have been transmitted to the monkeys from human visitors while the monkeys were on exhibit.  (+info)

Serological detection of Capillaria hepatica by indirect immunofluorescence assay. (8/318)

In this paper, a serological assay for the detection of antibodies to Capillaria hepatica, a zoonotic parasite, is described. In the past, the only way of detecting Capillaria hepatica was to perform a liver biopsy. The indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) assay, based on liver sections of naturally infected mice and human serum samples, is suitable for detecting early stages of human infections and for screening purposes. No cross-reactivity with other parasitic infections was detected. We have applied the IIF assay to serum samples of 60 employees of the Zoological Garden of Vienna, Schonbrunn, Austria, and found one positive and one questionable sample.  (+info)

San Diego Zoo Global is a not-for-profit organization headquartered in San Diego that operates the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research, and the San Diego Zoo Global Wildlife Conservancy. Founded in 1916 as the Zoological Society of San Diego under the leadership of Harry M. Wegeforth, the organization claims the largest zoological society membership in the world, with more than 250,000 member households and 130,000 child memberships, representing more than half a million people. The organizations mission is to save vulnerable species through animal care based in conservation science. In its first few decades, the Zoological Society of San Diego worked to establish and build up the San Diego Zoo. Members of the organization formed groups that later became the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) and American Association of Zoo Keepers. In the early 1970s the Society established the San Diego Wild Animal Park in the San Pasqual ...

Every zoo animal has a unique story and a journey all their own. Some animals come to the Fort Wayne Childrens zoo as adults and some are born here and move on to new adventures at other zoos. The lemur and wildebeest babies born at the zoo in 2014 fall into a different category. Theyre growing up right here in Fort Wayne and zoo guests get to see it all!. Back in September one of the zoos ring-tailed lemurs, Kyna, gave birth to a healthy baby girl. Zoo keepers named her "Madi" and guests had a chance to see mom and baby on exhibit for a few weeks before the close of the 2014 season. Madi has grown quite a bit and is almost as big as the other three lemurs in her troop. Zoo keeper Helena Lacey explains lemur behavior, "Madi would stay with her family in the wild, so she stays with them at the zoo. Shes weaned now and eats the same diet as the adults." Lacey has also begun training Madi using operant conditioning. Zoo keepers train animals on behaviors such as moving indoors when it gets cold ...

The Brookfield Zoo outside Chicago puts gorillas like these on a diet system like Weight Watchers, staff nutritionist Jennifer Watts told CNN affiliate WLS. Each food item has a specific point value attached, and animals have limits for how many points they can accumulate. A gorilla gets two points for a cube of sugary fruit juice, while a polar bear gets one point for each of its beloved granola bars.. Zoo Atlanta doesnt use an official point system, but strives to provide a low-calorie, healthy diet for its animals too. This zoo has moved away from fruit juices for primates - now their orangutans and gorillas get Crystal Light. It may have less sugar, but they like the low-calorie alternative just as much, the zoos senior veterinarian Dr. Maria Crane said in an interview for this blog.. Zoo animals have a particular risk for becoming overweight because they do not have to forage or hunt for food the way they would in the wild, Crane said. To encourage the animals to move about, zoo staffers ...
The Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Gardens ten painted dog pups and their mom, "Imara," received special enrichment in the form of a USDA-inspected goat carcass this morning in their public exhibit. Simulating a wild feeding increases the dogs mental and physical activity, provides nutritional benefits, and encourages natural sharing behavior unique to this species. Carcass feeding also provides guests with an opportunity to see some of the Zoos most active animals displaying their natural behaviors.. Other Zoos do carcass feedings, but this is a new enrichment activity for the Cincinnati Zoos carnivores. The carcasses, typically goats or pigs, are ordered by the Zoos nutritionist specifically for this purpose and have no prior affiliation to the Zoos animal collection. A carcass is prepared by first removing the head and innards to eliminate risk of disease, and then by freezing it overnight to kill any parasites.. "African painted dogs are carnivores just like us! Even though our meals look ...
08.01.2015. Rostock (AP) - In Rostock Zoo there is a case of avian flu. As the city administration Rostock on Thursday reported a white stork has infected. According to information from the Ministry of Agriculture in Schwerin highly pathogenic H5N8 virus was detected. As the dpa learned the affected animal and the other eight white storks of the zoo have been killed.. More information about the case or the possible consequences for other zoo animals were not available initially. Minister for Agriculture Till Backhaus (SPD) wanted to inform the public in the afternoon. As reported by the Veterinary Zoos of the city has instructed to close the zoo for this Thursday.. Only on Wednesday bird flu was detected in northern Saxony-Anhalt in two wild ducks. The animals had been shot during the game monitoring on 31 December. In both animals, the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institut was detected on Riems the H5N8 virus.. In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern bird flu was (district of Vorpommern-Greifswald) erupted with the ...
Tara, a Sumatran orangutan at the Fort Wayne Childrens Zoo, delivered a healthy female baby in the early morning hours of Saturday, November 22.. The baby is the only Sumatran orangutan born in a United States zoo in 2014, so she represents a significant addition to the population of critically endangered Sumatran orangutans.. "We are thrilled with the outcome so far," said Zoo Animal Curator Mark Weldon. "Tara is doing everything she should to care for her baby.". Zoo keepers and veterinary staff expected 19-year-old Tara to give birth between mid-November and early December. They had been watching Tara by remote camera overnight for several weeks. When keepers observed Tara pacing late Friday in her off-exhibit bedroom, they suspected she was in labor and arrived at the zoo to monitor the birth. Taras labor lasted a few hours, and she delivered her baby unassisted.. Immediately following the delivery, Tara began cleaning her infant and placed it in her nest - a pile of wood wool and blankets ...
Mysore Zoo (officially the Sri Chamarajendra Zoological Gardens) is a 157-acre (64 ha) zoo located near the palace in Mysore, India. It is one of the oldest and most popular zoos in India, and is home to a wide range of species (168). Mysore Zoo is one of the citys most popular attractions. While mainly depending on entry fees for its financing, an adoption scheme introduced in the early 2000s has been a success. Celebrities, institutions, and animal lovers have contributed directly to the welfare of the zoo inmates. Mysore Zoo was created in 1892 on 10 acres (4.0 ha) of the summer palace of Maharaja Sri Chamaraja Wodeyar, and was originally called the Palace Zoo. The zoo was originally set up by G.H. Krumbiegel, a German landscaper and horticulturist. Over the next 10 years the zoo was expanded to 45 acres (18 ha) with spacious enclosures that are still in use. The zoo was opened to the public in 1902, and now includes a bandstand and an artificial lake. It was given to the Department of Parks ...

We havent yet developed a plan for weaning Palu from his mother. Certainly he is of an appropriate age to be weaned, and obviously Pagi has already moved on to a new stage of independence. However, Palus situation is different from his sibling in that he is not yet slated to move to another facility. If we separate him now, he would remain at the San Diego Zoo in the near term, and that presents some challenges for us.. Those of you who have visited our Zoo know that we have a very robust population of bears. We are one of the few zoos in the world that has six species of bears exhibited: pandas, polars, brown, Andean, sloth, and sun bears. Bear Canyon is pretty full, and we dont have any open, unused, bear-friendly exhibits to move Palu to. That means that once he is separated from his mother, he would remain at Sun Bear Forest, where he would need to rotate exhibit time with Marcella.. Rotating animals on exhibit is a common practice. It allows animals to have some time out in the larger ...

My research interests are divided into four main themes each with a number of aspects currently under active research: 1)Avian Predatory Behaviour: Understanding of predator-prey systems particularly as they relate to avian predation on insects. ·Responses of birds to novel colour and odour cues in their prey. ·The effects of prey aggregation on learning and memory in birds. ·The stages involved in the recruitment of new prey into a birds diet. ·Mimicry systems and their effects on predation pressures. ·The evolution of aposematic colour patterns. 2)Zoo Research: Behavioural studies leading to the effective management of captive animals in zoos. Current topics include: ·Effects of environmental enrichment on the behaviour of birds. ·Identification and alleviation of detrimental effects which visitors have on zoo animals 3) Feeding ecology and reproductive biology of badgers in Ireland. 4)I have a great interest and increasing opportunity to study bird populations in relation to ...
Around every corner, inside almost every cage are dead animals, who have been lying in their cages since the Israeli incursion. Israeli troops shot and killed zoo animals 25 Jan 2009 The Gaza Zoo reeks of death. But zookeeper Emad Jameel Qasim doesnt appear to react to the stench as he walks around the animals enclosures. A month ago, it was attracting families - he says the zoo drew up to 1,000 visitors each day. He points at the foot-long hole in the camel in one of the enclosures. "This camel was pregnant, a missile went into her back," he tells us. "Look, look at her face. She was in pain when she died." [Yeah, I am *so sure* the pregnant camel was working for Hamas.

Directed by Robert Craig and written by Rajiv Joseph, the play was inspired by- but not modeled upon- 2003 news accounts of war-ravaged Baghdad in which zoo animals had been locked in their cages without food or water for who knows how long, while others had been set loose on the city or hunted by famished civilians. A literal rendering of that bizarre scenario would certainly make for high drama, but this Bengal tiger at the Baghdad Zoo is a creature of a different sort.. Like Ishmael, the gorilla in Daniel Quinns 1992 novel, Tiger (Noah Wagner) has the advantage of standing outside humanity so that he can objectively comment upon it. From the get-go, hes a philosopher and only grows more so after hes been shot dead. You see, he acted like any self-respecting tiger would and chomped off the hand of Tom (Lee Samuel Tanng), a US Marine who was taunting him with a Slim Jim. Toms fellow Marine on zoo watch, Kev (Jeff Rolle Jr.), kills the tiger, not with his bare hands, of course, but more like ...
Submitted by the Animal Health Committee, R. Eric Miller, DVM, Dipl. ACZM, Chairman. Nearly every contact with other living organisms, whether it be with humans or other animals, carries some risk of disease transmission. Diseases that are spread from animals to humans are called zoonoses (adj. = zoonotic diseases). Responsible zoos should and do make reasonable attempts to limit the risk of the spread of disease from the animals in their care to their employees and to the general public (4,9). For the general public, the risk of contracting disease from most zoo animals is minimal to nonexistent due to their distance and isolation from the animals. However, contact areas for the general public can present increased risks that can be controlled with reasonable precautions. For this paper, contact areas refers to those areas in which there is direct physical contact between animals and people. These precautions are most effective when they are part of an overall preventive medicine program for ...
Background Between 1986 and 2008 Streptococcus pneumoniae was isolated from 41 pets/zoo animals (guinea pigs (n = 17), cats (n = 12), horses (n = 4), dogs (n = 3), dolphins (n = 2), rat (n = 2), gorilla (n = 1)) treated in medical veterinary laboratories and zoos, and 44 laboratory animals (mastomys (multimammate mice; n = 32), mice (n = 6), rats (n = 4), guinea pigs (n = 2)) during routine health monitoring in an animal facility. S. pneumoniae was isolated from nose, lung and respiratory tract, eye, ear and other sites. Methodology/Principal Findings Carriage of the same isolate of S. pneumoniae over a period of up to 22 weeks was shown for four mastomys. Forty-one animals showed disease symptoms. Pneumococcal isolates were characterized by optochin sensitivity, bile solubility, DNA hybridization, pneumolysin PCR, serotyping and multilocus sequence typing. Eighteen of the 32 mastomys isolates (56%) were optochin resistant, all other isolates were optochin susceptible. All mastomys isolates were
Im just going to get this out of the way now; This movie sucks. In it, the zookeeper, Griffin is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend after she dumped him five years ago. Eventually, he finds out that the zoo animals can talk, and they all try to help him since he always treated them so well. But theres also another woman who works at the zoo that ends up being a second Love Interest for Griffin. His ex, on the other hand isnt interested in him if hes going to be just a zookeeper (even though he loves his job) and wants him to take a better-paying job at his brothers car dealership. Take a wild guess at how it ends. What follows is an annoying, unfunny Cliche Storm that youll be lucky to have laughed once at. The only animal that serves any purpose is the gorilla. The rest of the animals are completely meaningless to the plot, and are just there to make bad jokes and annoy the hell out of you (especially that damn monkey).

BIOLOGICAL REPORT 85(1.14) Contaminant Hazard Reviews APRIL 1988 REPORT NO. 14 LEAD HAZARDS TO FISH, WILDLIFE, AND INVERTEBRATES: A SYNOPTIC REVIEW by Ronald Eisler U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Patuxent Wildlife Research Center Laurel, MD 20708 SUMMARY Lead (Pb) and its compounds have been known to man for about 7,000 years, and Pb poisoning has been recognized for at least 2,500 years. All credible evidence indicates that Pb is neither essential nor beneficial to living organisms, and that all measured effects are adverse--including those on survival, growth, reproduction, development, behavior, learning, and metabolism. Various living resources are at increased risk from Pb: migratory waterfowl that frequent hunted areas and ingest shot; avian predators that eat game wounded by hunters; domestic livestock near smelters, refineries, and Pb battery recycling plants; captive zoo animals and domestic livestock held in enclosures coated with Pb-based paints; wildlife that forage extensively near ...

It may become advantageous to keep human-managed animals in the social network groups to which they have adapted. Data concerning the social networks of farm animal species and their ancestors are scarce but essential to establishing the importance of a natural social network for farmed animal species. Social Network Analysis (SNA) facilitates the characterization of social networking at group, subgroup and individual levels. SNA is currently used for modeling the social behavior and management of wild animals and social welfare of zoo animals. It has been recognized for use with farm animals but has yet to be applied for management purposes. Currently, the main focus is on cattle, because in large groups (poultry), recording of individuals is expensive and the existence of social networks is uncertain due to on-farm restrictions. However, in many cases, a stable social network might be important to individual animal fitness, survival and welfare. For instance, when laying hens are not too densely

Very sweet but not altruism - altruism would imply the dog made a conscious choice to foster the kittens. It is in fact rather common for animals that have lost their off-spring (her puppies were adopted) to adopt other young animals, including those of other species (although sometimes they need a little trickery - horse breeders will often wrap an orphan foal in the hide of a mares dead foal to get bonding - however, as soon as the orphan can suckle, this will trigger hormone release that leads to bonding so the hide can be removed soon; and not all mares need the trick, they will accept the foal). Dogs have in fact been used as foster mothers for zoo animals that could not be nursed by their biological mother. Here in Oz we have a german shepherd who fostered a tiger cub, for instance. Cross-species nurturing, in short, is not uncommon, and more due to the loss of own offspring and the need to nurse offspring, ie, having lots of milk left. To call it altruism is anthropomorphic. Actually, ...

Yeah, I know its only March as of the writing of this piece, but when an album punches you repeatedly in the face, kidney region, and groin area a hundred and sixty-two times before its made one complete revolution, then by default, said album has effectively muscled its way in. Lair of the Minotaur. Evil Power. Metal, metal, and more metal! Not since Skeletonwitchs Breathing the Fire have I listened to an album that has felt so damned immediate, and folks, a lot of metal has etched its grooves into my desk in the past year. These guys bring the guts and the muscle and the violence and the imagery and all of those great classic metal elements that make testosterone amped lads act like escaped zoo animals. Their sound is raw and somewhat sludge-y, yet the sound grooves and is jam packed with riffs that will have you banging your head, crunching your abs, whipping yourself into a spastic frenzy, flipping over your desk with rage . . . a sound ...

Just two months before the deaths at the National Zoo, the San Francisco Zoo had lost a lowland gorilla named Pogo to heart disease. A week before that, the Memphis Zoo lost one named Tumai the same way. And in previous years, there were others: Akbar at the Toledo Zoo in 2005, and in 2000 both Sam at the Knoxville Zoo and Michael at the Gorilla Foundation in California.. Now zookeepers are scrambling to understand what factors may be causing the illnesses and what might be done to save the 368 lowland gorillas that currently reside in 52 zoos across North America.. A 1994 study of 74 captive gorilla deaths, published by veterinarians Tom Meehan of the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago and Linda Lowenstine of the University of California at Davis, found that 41 percent - and 70 percent of males older than 30 - were from heart disease, mainly fibrosing cardiomyopathy.. "That study was a wake up call," says Meehan, now the vice president for veterinary services at the Chicago Zoological Society. It showed ...
An orangutan named Virang, finally died after all of his suffering life at Punti Kayu zoo in Palembang, South Sumatra. In this illegal zoo, there are living 5 sunbears with worse condition than Virang. They have shown a stereotype behavior.. Centre for Orangutan Protection has assessed the zoo and the result shows that technically, it is impossible to improve this zoo. Therefore, the zoo should be closed down immediately and the animals should be rescued.. The APE Warrior team of Centre for Orangutan Protection in Sumatra Mission programme, will be in Sumatra for 30 days to gather the public support. This should be done to fight against animal poaching and trading. Because, most of animal collections in this zoo were from the community, it could be that they were victims of poaching and trading. They will die in vain in this bad zoo like Punti Kayu.. We have reported to the authority but no response or action. This week an orangutan died, but it could be next week, other animals including the ...
Obesity has been identified as a life-threatening condition among human beings. But as officials in the Delhi zoo have realised over the last year, it can stall life in the animal kingdom too. Thats why they are returning Salman, a 12-year-old jaguar, to Kerala with this stinging verdict: "hes too fat to breed". Salman was borrowed on a "breeding loan" from the Thiruvananthapuram Zoological Garden last October, but has since shown "complete disinterest" in pairing up with the lone female jaguar in the National Zoological Park here, say Delhi zoo officials. They say Salman has "reached out for its meals more keenly than for Kalpana", the female jaguar. "He was brought on a breeding loan but it has been over a year and Salman has shown no interest in mating. In fact, the female is seen trying to entice him but he lies in a corner and refuses to respond. He is too fat to breed," Delhi zoo curator Riaz Khan told The Indian Express. "Now we know for sure nothing is going to happen. So it is best ...
I like your use of the phrase "low-key anti-zoo" because I feel like it sums up the feelings of a vast majority of people sort of 40 and under (although my favorite is "I dont believe in zoos". Its a zoo, not fucking Narnia). I think the "zoos are bad" mentality has become part of our cultural consciousness, something that we absorb as truth in our childhood or adolescence and then never question as adults who are capable of informing our own opinions. I dont blame people for having low-key anti-zoo feelings, though. Zoos in America were terrible places until not too long ago, and I feel like the Animal Rights movement did great things in bringing animal welfare into the public eye. Unfortunately, I feel like the majority of people who tell me they "dont believe in zoos" generally dont know why they have those feelings. They can point to one or two broader topics like, "wild animals should be wild" or "animals arent meant to be entertainment", but they usually cant clarify beyond those ...

Within the first week of The Workhorse Zoo, the installation had become a part of the Global entertainment network, which meant that the Animals (including the humans) had become another in the long line of Real Television styled, ironic volunteers in the media war against personal privacy. Like a multispecies Big Brother, The Real World and Survivor, we had voluntarily displayed ourselves spread eagle on a non-stop 24-hour web cam and through personal interaction with the hungry, voyeuristic eyes of Middle America. We had college level Art, Biology and Psychology classes, high school and elementary classes, church groups, lawyer s luncheons, art appreciation groups, goth-punk contingents and local farmers filtering through on a daily basis. There were also rewarding moments of public purview, mostly when the little children entered the Zoo and held or fed a lab mouse or a lab frog for the first ...
Marius the giraffe is pictured in Copenhagen Zoo February 7, 2014. The Copenhagen Zoo went ahead with a plan to shoot and dismember a healthy giraffe on Sunday and feed the 18-month-old animals carcass to lions - an action the zoo said was in line with anti-inbreeding rules meant to ensure a healthy giraffe population. The giraffe, named Marius, was shot in the head and then cut apart in view of children, according to a video of the incident released by the Denmark-based production company Localize. The zoos plans had sparked an outcry from animal rights activists. A British zoo had offered to give Marius a home and even started an online petition to save the giraffe, gathering more than 25,000 signatures. Picture taken February 7, 2014.

For more than three decades, the Animal Legal Defense Fund has been fighting to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system.
Species Survival Plans are very important for endangered and threatened animals in the zoological setting. There is a group of people who are dedicated to each specific species, whether it is something big like a lion or giraffe, to the Louisiana pine snake. The group keeps track of all the individuals in all AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums) accredited facilities in the US and some zoos around the world. They match animals up based on genetic variability, institutional needs, and personalities of animals. This way, zoos can create a sort of zoo "ark," using science to make sure the animals in our care are as healthy as possible throughout their bloodlines.. The SSP informed us there was a lovely six year old lady jaguar named Maya from the Turtleback Zoo, who would be a good match for Kan Balam. Maya is young and genetically important to the population. The SSP, or "eHarmony for jaguars", wanted to pair Maya up with a male for breeding as well. So the SSP decided to not only send us Maya, ...
Zoo Stories. Another couple of shorts for the Unfinished Tales folder. Or possibly a new cycle of tales in its own right. Johanna Smith-Rhodes sighed and poured a cup of tea. The Zoo Trust meeting had gone as most committee meetings usually do - ten minutes of useful content and decision-making, and fifty minutes of blather and hot air. She thanked goodness it was all over for another month, and checked the clock; just time for a cup of tea before making her way back to the School to take a class.. Lifting the cup to her lips, she reviewed the useful decisions that had been made. The surplus litter of leopard cubs, once weaned, would go along with their mother to the Quirm city zoo. In exchange, Quirm was sending some of its surplus animals that the Ankh-Morpork Zoo was deficient in. She wasnt yet sure which species, but Mr Grinchlow had an idea of what gaps the Zoo had and which new animals would be of scientific interest, as well as attracting visitor attention.. She felt she could leave the ...

The L.A. Zoo last week introduced two endangered African wild dogs, the zoos first in more than 40 years.. The pair of black, yellow, and white canines are brother and sister, and just over a year old. They most recently lived at New Yorks Bronx Zoo.. In their native sub-Saharan Africa, the dogs are predators that roam up to 30 miles a day hunting for food.. But they have declined in population recently because of human incursions into their habitat and from diseases such as rabies and canine distemper. Only about 5,000 exist worldwide; about 150 live in captivity in the United States. Officials plan to breed the pair with wild dogs from other zoos. They are part of the national Species Survival Plan program, which finds suitable mates for animals facing extinction. --Tony Barboza. Photo: Tad Motoyama/Los Angeles Zoo. ...

Both Adelaide and Monarto Zoos are home to Australias most endangered reptile, the Western Swamp Tortoise. They live in swamps during winter and hibernate in the summer! There are only around 700 Western Swamp Tortoises left in the wild. Zoos SA, in partnership with Perth Zoo, is part of a specialised breed for release program to ensure their long-term survival.. In September, five Adelaide Zoo-bred critically endangered Western Swap Tortoises will return to Western Australia to prepare to be released into the wild. Thankfully, this amazing reptile has secured a second chance of survival through an intensive breeding program, and Zoos SA is one of only two zoos in the world fortunate enough to be working to save this species from extinction.. Thanks to our breeding programs, were proud to say the future is looking bright for the Pygmy Blue Tongue Lizard, the Striped Legless Lizard, and the Western Swamp Tortoise..

WILLIAMS, J H et al. Barbiturate ingestion in three adult captive tigers (Panthera tigris) and concomitant fatal botulism of one. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.4, pp.244-249. ISSN 2224-9435.. Zoo animals, including tigers, have been reported to suffer from barbiturate intoxication, with pentabarbitone being most commonly recorded. Clinical signs range from mild ataxia to general anaesthesia with recovery over hours to days with several factors affecting hepatic barbiturate metabolism and tissue partitioning. Botulism is an often fatal intoxication in man, animals, birds and certain fish. The occurrence in carnivores is uncommon to rare, with only 2 reports found of botulism in felids. This report relates to 3 adult captive cohabiting tigers that simultaneously developed signs of abdominal discomfort, progressive ataxia, recumbency and comatose sleep resembling stage 2 anaesthesia, alternating with periods of distracted wakefulness and ataxic movements. These signs occurred 4 ...

Canine distemper virus (CDV), a morbillivirus that causes one of the most contagious and lethal viral diseases known in canids, has an expanding host range, including wild animals. Since December 2009, several dead or dying wild raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) were found in and around one safari-style zoo in Japan, and CDV was isolated from four of these animals. In the subsequent months (January to February 2010), 12 tigers (Panthera tigris) in the zoo developed respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases, and CDV RNA was detected in fecal samples of the examined tigers. In March 2010, one of the tigers developed a neurological disorder and died; CDV was isolated from the lung of this animal. Sequence analysis of the complete hemagglutinin (H) gene and the signal peptide region of the fusion (F) gene showed high homology among these isolates (99.8-100%), indicating that CDV might have been transmitted from raccoon dog to tiger. In addition, these isolates belonged to genotype Asia-1 and ...
We have conducted noninvasive scat surveys of snow leopards in several regions of China, Mongolia, Pakistan and Tajikistan. Our pilot surveys have been described in Janecka et al. (2008a,b). We work closely with local biologists, herders, and residents, whose collaboration is essential for the success of the surveys. Scats are collected in areas where local people have observed snow leopards, and there is recent sign. We have found that there may be significant misidentification of snow leopard scats in the field, even by experienced biologists. Therefore, training in sign identification and recording is important for minimizing the amount of non-snow leopard scat collected.. Depending on the ruggedness of the terrain and the altitude, 3-7 km of wildlife trails can be surveyed by one team in a day. The techniques used for collecting scats are described in DNA Sampling Protocol-Scat (see also Data Codes and Definitions, and Scat Sample Data Form) and Scat Genetics Survey Methodology for Snow ...

FIV was first isolated in 1987 from domestic cats (Felis catus) with chronic AIDS-like disorders [60]. Epidemiological studies by ELISA, immunoblotting, and/or PCR techniques have revealed that FIV is detectable in a broad range of wild animals in the family Felidae [61-63]. FIV has been detected in felids residing in the Old World, including lions (Panthera leo), cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) and leopards (Panthera pardus), and those in the New World, including pumas (Puma concolor), jaguars (Panthera onca), and ocelots (Leopardus pardalis) [61]. FIV appears to be distributed worldwide, since a felid species in Asia, Pallas cat (Otocolobus manul), has been shown to be positive for FIV by PCR [61, 64, 65]. Furthermore, one study has confirmed that a FIV-related virus is present in spotted hyenas (Crocuta crocuta), a related carnivore family belonging to Hyaenidae [61]. In contrast to the disorders seen in FIV-infected domestic cats, it appears that FIV infections in wild felids are relatively ...
ABSTRACT. Feline immunodeficiency virus is a lentivirus of domestic cats that causes significant lifelong infection. Infection with this or similar lentiviruses has been detected in several nondomestic feline species, including African lions (Panthera leo). Although lion lentivirus (FIVple) infection is endemic in certain lion populations in eastern and southern Africa, little is known about its pathogenic effects or its epidemiological impact in free-ranging lions. This report describes the epidemiological investigation of lentivirus positivity of free-ranging lions in the Kruger National Park, South Africa. A nested polymerase chain reaction assay for virus detection was performed on all whole blood samples collected. In addition, serum samples were tested for cross-reactive antibodies to domestic feline lentivirus antigens and to puma lentivirus synthetic envelope peptide antigen. The results were analysed in conjunction with epidemiological data to provide a descriptive epidemiological study ...
