Problem

Psychosocial deprivation of animals

Other Names:
Impoverished animal environments
Behavioural monotony of captive and domesticated animals
Animal boredom
Nature:
Animals kept under unchanging conditions which offer them little incentive to move and explore their environment may easily become bored, especially when the environment does not permit them to participate in their normal cycles of relationship with those of the same or different species. They then exhibit abnormal behaviour patterns, such as the repetitive pacing and rubbing frequently observable in zoos.
