Abstract

Professional veterinarians are one of the most affected
professions when it comes to killing animals. However,
in some situations the opinion about the acceptance
of killing of animals differs between people, which can
cause a dilemma for the executing person. In a pilot
study based on questionnaires, veterinarians from dif-
ferent working fields and students of different branches
stated their acceptance of killing of animals in diverse
concrete situations. The result clearly demonstrates a
higher acceptance of killing of animals among veteri-
narians with longtime experience in contrast to other
groups and the almost same acceptance among agri-
cultural students. The acceptance increased with age,
however, we could not find a gender specific difference
except of within a narrow age interval. The variability
of acceptance within the same profession group differs
between the situations. Veterinarians should be aware
of their different thinking about killing of animals in
some situations compared to other people and should
know the reason of such differences. This is important
not least to protect themselves and their opinion and
to contribute to their societal responsibility by their
veterinarian activity.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
