What Animals Want

Larry Carbone

This chapter examines debates about cage-size regulations, both for how they illustrate the standards issue and because they have caused such a prominent controversy over several decades of animal care policy. Topics discussed include performance standards in animal welfare policy, defining standards in animal housing, and alternative performance standards.

Keywords:   cage-size, animal welfare policy, animal housing, performance standards
