I think it's a great move.
It's like a lot of stuff people do to animals. Just because they "don't seem to mind" is not really a good enough reason to keep doing something that alters an animal's perceptions, balance, or natural abilities, just because it's the style. The analysis has to be a bit more rigorous than that, in my opinion. The rigorous analysis is that it does affect the animal adversely, whether it shows that to you or not.
