Pets, farm animals and zoo animals live in a universe structured by humans. There are ways of responding to the psychological needs of our animals so they are the least stressed possible in their daily lives. Temple Grandin as an ethologist who is also autistic gives us those insights which will help us make our animals' lives pleasanter. I have already applied some of her lessons to my small flock of hens and it seems to be working. Her methods can be used by the big guys (she consults for McDonald's) and the single pet owner. Her book highlights the interdependency between humans and other animals and is a thought provoking read.
