“Americans love animals more than they used to — even ‘scary’ ones,” says the headline of a Sept. 20 story in the Washington Post. It’s on a recent study by CFAES scientists called “Changes in attitudes toward animals in the United States from 1978 to 2014,” which the journal Biological Conservation recently published. Americans’ changing attitudes, the scientists wrote, “may be indicative of growing concern for the welfare of animals — both wild and domestic.” The scientists are with the Department of Animal Sciences and the School of Environment and Natural Resources.
