After three years of protests from animal rights organizations, Japan has finally decided to bid farewell to a deadly pesticide test they would use on dogs.

Pesticide tests are extremely toxic to anyone, and sadly, poisoned many dogs in Japan. They were locked up in cages and were forced to eat pesticide-laced food and inhale pesticide fumes until they finally died, and then their bodies were used for dissection. Luckily, that isn’t the case anymore – thanks to dedicated work from scientists working for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

According to PETA: “[A]fter receiving documentation from PETA scientists of extensive analyses conducted by experts demonstrating that data from one-year dog poisoning test are not used to protect humans, the Japanese Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries has decided to stop requiring the use of this test.”

This test has already been removed from pesticide registration requirements in many countries, including Canada, the United States, and those who are part of the European Union, also thanks to help from PETA scientists. The lack of such useless requirements save thousands of dogs’ lives every single year.
