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 ...
NORTH, Michelle A. et al. Suspected lead poisoning in two captive cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus jubatus) in South Africa, in 2008 and 2013. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2015, vol.86, n.1, pp.01-05. ISSN 2224-9435. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/JSAVA.v86i1.1286.. Whilst lead poisoning in raptors, scavenging birds and waterfowl is well studied and common knowledge, there is surprisingly little literature detailing the risk to mammalian scavengers and captive carnivores fed hunted meat. This case report describes the death of two captive cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus jubatus) following acute onset of nervous symptoms. Clinical signs included hyper-excitability, seizures, arched back, tail held abnormally high and hyper-salivation. Necropsy findings included bullets or a bullet in their stomachs. Kidney and liver lead levels from one cheetah (15.6 ppm and 17 ppm respectively) were consistent with a diagnosis of lead poisoning; liver from the second cheetah was not available for testing. Both animals were ...

Milwaukee, Wis., July 17, 2015 - For its July centennial Gift to the Community, the Greater Milwaukee Foundation is helping the Milwaukee County Zoo add two snow leopards to its animal collection.. The Zoos 1-year-old snow leopard cub, Sossy, died unexpectedly on June 5, leaving only Sossys mother, adult female Tomiris. The Zoo plans to acquire a male and a female snow leopard with the Foundations gift.. The acquisition of two snow leopards will be very important to the inter-Zoo and international cooperation of captive management of these endangered felines, said Zoo director Chuck Wikenhauser. It will help the Zoo continue to play a meaningful part in snow leopard conservation.. The new snow leopards will be imported from Europe, which will add new genetics to the American population. This benefits the long-term survival of the species. There is no certain timeline for the animals arrival due to variables related to securing permits, transportation and health requirements, but Zoo ...

In captivity, cheetahs (Acinonyx jubatus) frequently suffer from several unusual chronic diseases that rarely occur in their free-ranging counterparts. In order to develop a better understanding of their metabolism and health we documented the urine organic acids of 41 apparently healthy captive cheetahs, in an untargeted metabolomic study, using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. A total of 339 organic acids were detected and annotated. Phenolic compounds, thought to be produced by the anaerobic fermentation of aromatic amino acids in the distal colon, as well as their corresponding glycine conjugates, were present in high concentrations. The most abundant organic acids in the cheetahs urine were an as yet unidentified compound and a novel cadaverine metabolite, tentatively identified as N1,N5-dimethylpentane-1,5-diamine. Pantothenic acid and citramalic acid concentrations correlated negatively with age, while glutaric acid concentrations correlated positively with age, suggesting possible ...
Abstract Leptospirosis due to Leptospira interrogans serovar icterohaemorrhagiae was diagnosed in two zoo animal keepers. The implicated source of infection was bear cubs that had microscopic agglutination antibody titers to leptospires of the Icterohaemorrhagiae serogroup.

The human-animal bond encompasses a wide range of emotional, physical and physiological effects induced by close, especially long-term, close interaction between a human and an animal. Considering it a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and animals that is influenced by behaviors that are essential to the health and well-being of both, the American Veterinary Medical Association established a committee that develops policies, for veterinarians and the human companions of the animals, to encourage its benefits.[1] This bond is best known with companion animals, but there can be close bonds, for example, between zoo animals and the staff that work with them, and, to a lesser extent, between wild and semi-tame animals and humans when their territories cross. The bond can extend beyond death. The best known example in the Western Hemisphere is probably that of Greyfriars Bobby, a Skye Terrier. Bobby guarded his owners grave for fourteen years, until his own death. Bobby ...

The Potter Park Zoo team is preparing to say farewell to one of its well-known animal residents. Liya the female Amur tiger is heading to another zoo following a breeding recommendation from the Amur Tiger Species Survival Program (SSP).. The SSP program, managed by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), strives to maintain healthy, genetically diverse populations in accredited zoos. This requires strategic management and planning for the individual animals within the breeding population. Liya is leaving Potter Park Zoo for a breeding placement at another AZA accredited zoo.. I was incredibly fortunate to be part of the team that hand raised Liya and her sisters, said Annie Marcum, Carnivore and Primate Area Lead Keeper. It has been amazing to watch her grow and become a tiger with an amazing personality that developed trusting relationships with the animal care staff. Experiencing Liyas life so far has been a highlight of my career. She will be missed terribly, but we very much look ...

3 white tiger cubs born. 1ANDHRA PRADESH Apr 25, 2006. Tuesday April 25 2006 12:14 IST TIRUPATI: The Sri Venkateswara Zoological Park (SVZP) here has become home to three cute white tiger cubs.. The new inmates were born to Ranadheer (4) and Haseena (5), the white tiger couple, which are pride of the zoological park.. The little ones were born on April 1 and opened their eyes after three weeks of their birth. All the three are healthy, according to caretaker Haseena.. Ranadheer was brought to the zoo about 15 months ago when he was aged about two and a half years. Haseena, a year older, was also brought on the same day from Hyderabad on instructions from the Central Zoo Authority of India (CZAI). The cubs are very active and constantly are always seen in the company of their mother Haseena. They resemble their father, Ranadheer who weighs 275 kg and has a chubby look, says the in-charge curator of the Zoo.. The Central Zoo Authority of India sent a scientist on Monday from Delhi to SVZP to ...
The Zoo began as Wade Park in 1882 after Jeptha H. Wade donated 73-acres of land and 14 American deer to the City of Cleveland. By 1907, however, Cleveland City Council had laid plans to build the Cleveland Museum of Art and decided to move the Zoo to its current location.. The animals kept in the early Zoo were mostly of local origin, but the next thirty years saw the building of the Zoos first Monkey Island, Sea Lion Pools and bear exhibit before the Cleveland Natural History Museum assumed control in 1940.. In November 1940,a new Asian elephant arrived at the Zoo. The Cleveland News sponsored an elephant naming contest, with the winning name Osa submitted by a 12-year-old boy from Cleveland Heights. However, the elephant had a name, Frieda, to which she had responded for many years. Its extremely difficult to change names in the middle of an elephants life. A few years after the elephant had been living at the Zoo, one of her ex-trainers happened to visit her and called to her by her ...

Once these signs were present, staff decided to introduce the pair, which were to be a part of a Europe-wide tiger conservation program for the endangered Sumatran subspecies. However, things quickly escalated.. Their introduction began as predicted, but quickly escalated into a more aggressive interaction, the zoo said.. Within minutes of the introduction, Asim, 7, had killed Melati, 10, even though aversion techniques were used to try and distract the fighting pair.. The use of loud noises, flares, and alarms was implemented and Asim, whose name, ironically, means protector in Arabic, was eventually placed back into a separate enclosure. However, it was too late by that stage and Melati had already perished.. Everyone here at ZSL London Zoo is devastated by the loss of Melati and we are heartbroken by this turn of events, the zoo said in a statement. ...

CINCINNATI (March 28, 2016)- Since 2010, three Brazilian ocelot kittens, females Milagre, Ayla, and Revy, have been produced using artificial insemination (AI) techniques developed and performed by scientists from the Cincinnati Zoos Center for Conservation & Research of Endangered Wildlife (CREW). All three of these genetically-valuable ocelots have gone on to produce offspring of their own as a result of natural breeding. The most recent kitten was born at the Santa Ana Zoo in December to Revy, the last of the three AI offspring to reproduce.. Without the AI option, Milagre, Ayla and Revy - and all of their subsequent offspring - would have never existed and the long-term genetic viability of our Brazilian ocelot population would have been further diminished as a consequence, said Dr. Bill Swanson, CREWs Director of Animal Research and one of the worlds authorities on breeding endangered small cats. Only 30 Brazilian ocelots exist in North American Zoos, and seven, or nearly one ...
Elephants living in zoos have shorter lives than their wild counterparts, according to a new study that will most certainly stir debate about their captive situations. Researchers compared the life spans of elephants in European zoos with those living in Amboseli National Park in Kenya and others working on a timber enterprise in Myanmar. Animals in the wild or in natural working conditions had life spans twice that or more of their relatives in zoos.. The new findings were published in the journal Science where researchers wrote obesity is a leading cause of death in adult zoo elephants, and stress is a killer of young animals moved between zoos.. In recent years, animal care activists have campaigned to discourage keeping elephants in zoos due to the lack of space and small numbers of animals that can be kept in a group. The median life span for African elephants in European zoos was 16.9 years, compared with 56 years for elephants who died of natural causes in Kenyas Amboseli Park. For the ...
Sydney, Austrailia A 7-year-old boy broke into a popular Outback zoo, fed a string of animals to the resident crocodile and bashed several lizards to death with a rock, the zoos director said Friday.. The 30-minute rampage, caught on the zoos security camera, happened early Wednesday after the boy jumped a security fence at the Alice Springs Reptile Center in central Australia, said zoo director Rex Neindorf.. The child then went on a killing spree, bashing three lizards to death with a rock, including the zoos beloved, 20-year-old goanna, which he then fed to Terry, an 11-foot, 440-pound saltwater crocodile, said Neindorf.. The boy also fed several live animals to Terry by throwing them over the two fences surrounding the crocodiles enclosure, at one point climbing over the outer fence to get closer to the giant reptile.. In the footage, the boys face remains largely blank, Neindorf said, adding: It was like he was playing a game.. By the time he was done, 13 animals worth around ...
BEHAVIOUR AND FOOD HABIT : Eastern grey kangaroos are gregarious and form open-membership groups. The groups are made up of 2-3 females and their offspring with the same number of males of which one is dominant. They exist in a dominance hierarchy and the dominant individuals gain access to better sources of food and areas of shade. However, kangaroos are not territorial and usually fight only when females are in estrous. Females may form strong kinship bonds with their female relatives. Females with living female relatives have a greater chance of reproducing. They are predominantly grazing animal. They are herbivores, but will eat a range of plants including fungi in some cases. With the grasses they prefer to eat young green shoots. ...

Genetic diversity of captive wild animals can be enhanced by moving those individuals with valuable genes between collections and through introduction of a new pair from a range country. This requires movement of animals, which is inherent with disease risks, such as the introduction of pathogenic Mycobacterium sp. (MTBC) into a zoological collection. Decisions need to be made based on the outcome of perimovement disease screening using an array of tests, the majority of which are unvalidated in the species. A pair of endangered Asiatic lions (Panthera leo persica) imported from India to the United Kingdom were screened for MTBC using the comparative intradermal tuberculosis (TB) test, the feline interferon-c blood test, and the experimental bacteriophage assay. Reactions on all three tests prompted screening of the three resident Asiatic lions using the same tests, all of which were negative for MTBC. Based on these test results, the decision had to be made to exclude the genetically valuable ...
The once thriving captive-born southern white rhinoceros population is being threatened by their diet, according to new research. San Diego Zoo Global researchers predict that phytoestrogens in the rhinoceros´ food may be causing reproductive failure in the females.. In a press release detailing the research, Christopher Tubbs, researcher with the San Diego Zoo Institute for Conservation Research explained the importance of the study.. Understanding why the captive white rhinoceros population has been dwindling for decades is an important part of protecting the future of this species. Our work is the first step toward determining if phytoestrogens are involved in this phenomenon and whether we need to reevaluate captive white rhino diets.. Zoologists have only recently found the northern and southern white rhinoceros to be different species´ rather than a subspecies of the African white rhinoceros. As such, conservation efforts have been specifically designed to increase the population of ...
The distribution on serovars of 60 Salmonella isolates from reptiles kept in captivity in Denmark during the period 1995-2006 was investigated. The isolates were all recovered from clinical specimens submitted to the National Veterinary Institute. A majority of the samples were from reptiles in zoological gardens or similar, while a minor number was from reptiles kept in private homes. A total of 43 serovars were detected, most of them being what is usually called exotic serotypes, and many not having a trivial name, while a few isolates belonged to well-known human pathogenic serovars, such as S. Enteritidis, S. Typhimurium, S. Bovismorbificans. One isolate was rough and two were non-typeable. Isolates from turtles belonged to the subspecies enterica, while many isolates from both sauria and snakes belonged to other subspecies. The findings underline the potential zoonotic risk by handling reptiles in zoological garden or other public settings, or keeping pet reptiles in private homes ...

The following morning, we moved the chick into its new home in the APCs Brooder Room. A brooder is a warm, humid box that mimics the environment under a parent bird. It is important that the chick never become imprinted on its human surrogates, so this particular brooder is covered with a towel, set behind a curtain, and continuously serenaded by a CD of soothing rain forest sounds to drown out the keepers voices. When it comes time to feed the baby, we put a sheet (or ghost) over our head and use a harpy eagle puppet to deliver the food.. The chick finally woke up and took its first small meal of diced pinkie mice at 4 p.m., 21 hours after hatching. It was the beginning of a gluttony that will turn this 73-ounce puffball into the most powerful avian predator on Earth!. Be sure to check back for regular updates..

In the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, field studies have found fairly high densities of black-footed cats in some areas - with up to five cats per square kilometer of land. Given such relative abundance and the open terrain typical of the thornveld, catching wild black-footed cats for scientific studies would appear to be a simple proposition. But, as CREW scientists found during their initial field survey in South Africa, black-footed cats may have other ideas. In a research project being conducted in collaboration with the McGregor Museum, San Diego Zoo, University of Illinois and Wuppertal Zoo, wild black-footed cats are being live-trapped to collect blood for disease and dietary analysis and semen for sperm banking before release back into the wild. That first night in the field resulted in the capture of one adult male, the cryopreservation of 15 straws of semen and the subsequent release of one feisty little cat. Three more weeks of trapping, however, yielded only foxes, mongooses ...

Although the development of semen cryopreservation in the African elephants (Loxodonta africana) has been accomplished, effective procedures for cryopreservation of Asian elephant (Elephas maximus) spermatozoa have not been established. In the present study, we investigate the freezing methods for conservation of Asian elephant spermatozoa under field conditions and identify the most suitable freezing protocols which provide acceptable post-thaw semen quality. Semen was collected from two Asian elephant bulls (EM1 and EM2, 10 ejaculates from each bull) by manual manipulation and were assessed for volume, pH, sperm cell concentration, and progressive motility. Eight out of 20 ejaculates were of acceptable quality (progressive motility≥60%), and were used for cryopreservation studies. Semen were frozen in TEST+glycerol, TEST+DMSO, HEPT+glycerol, or HEPT+DMSO. The post-thaw progressive sperm motilities were assessed, and sperm cells were stained with PI and FITC-PNA for membrane and acrosomal ...

The black-footed ferret is solitary, except when breeding or raising litters.[8][9] It is nocturnal[8][19] and primarily hunts for sleeping prairie dogs in their burrows.[20] It is most active above ground from dusk to midnight and 4 am to mid-morning.[11] Aboveground activity is greatest during late summer and early autumn when juveniles become independent.[11] Climate generally does not limit black-footed ferret activity,[9][11] but it may remain inactive inside burrows for up to 6 days at a time during winter.[21]. Female black-footed ferrets have smaller home ranges than males. Home ranges of males may sometimes include the home ranges of several females.[9] Adult females usually occupy the same territory every year. A female that was tracked from December to March occupied 39.5 acres (16 ha). Her territory was overlapped by a resident male that occupied 337.5 acres (137 ha) during the same period. The average density of black-footed ferrets near Meeteetse, Wyoming, is estimated at one ...
