Dear PEOPLES BARK NEWS READER,
I have great news! After discussions with PETA’s scientists, the Canadian government is ending its requirement that dogs be exposed to pesticides in year-long tests. During those tests, beagles were force-fed food laced with pesticides or were made to inhale pesticide fumes for a year, then killed and dissected. At PETA’s urging, the U.S ended this same test in 2007, and the European Union followed suit in 2013.
Eliminating this testing requirement is estimated to save the lives of hundreds of dogs each year, and we couldn’t have done it without your support. But we still have work to do. PETA is urging other countries, including Japan and South Korea, to drop their requirement for one-year pesticide testing on dogs and we are working to end ALLpesticide testing on dogs and other animals. We’ll be in touch with updates on our progress.
