It’s important to know how to be safe when you’re with them. Both indoor animals and outdoor animals need to be treated kindly all the time.
This means different things depending on the animal and the situation.
With a wild animal, being kind may mean staying far away so the animal doesn’t feel threatened and so you stay safe.
It is important that personnel be protected from risks associated with the use of animals in research and teaching.
These risks may be presented by the animal itself, organisms harbored by the animal or hazardous agents used as part of the study protocol.
