Title: Birth origin affects the development of stereotypic behaviour in captive wild animals
Author: Jones, M.A.; Mason, G.J.; Pillay, N.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: Birth origin (wild-caught or captive-born) is a significant predictor of the level of stereotypic behaviours, as well as perseveration, activity levels, and fear/anxiety. Captive bred animals have better welfare than animals cap-tured from the wild, but they may have impaired brain development.
