    Abstract

    More than other types of wildlife management practices, vertebrate pest control activities elicit strong responses from the animal welfare community. The vertebrate pest control profession needs to become more aware of the concerns of this group, and sincere attempts must be made to incorporate their concerns in research and management practices. To assist in this task, recommendations for decision making to address animal welfare concerns for vertebrate pest control activities are given, along with a set of criteria for developing humane toxicants.
