The move towards a greater understanding of animal behavior has resulted in terms being used such as choice and consent, and a reduction in the application of coercion to achieve human goals. The move towards a greater understanding of animal behavior has resulted in terms being used such as choice and consent, and a reduction in the application of coercion to achieve human goals. While this is undoubtedly a major step forward, it also raises questions such as how can we truly enable animals to give consent, are we achieving any improvement for the animal when attempting to apply methods such as CC/DS and just how much coercion is too much? This session will explore the reframing of the terms, including discussion around the use of food in relation to coercion and bribery, using real life case studies and examples.
