Victory! South Korea Ends Cruel Poisoning Test on Dogs

Posted on by PETA

Following a PETA U.S. appeal, South Korea has joined Canada, the European Union, Japan, and the U.S. in stopping a deadly pesticide test on dogs.

For this test, dogs were forced to eat pesticide-laced food or inhale pesticide fumes daily for a year before being killed and dissected.

We’d like to thank South Korea’s Rural Development Administration for being responsive to PETA U.S.’ request that it review the gruesome test and take steps to follow the lead of other countries that no longer require it.

PETA and its affiliates will continue to work to end all testing on animals worldwide.

Brazil is currently in the process of revising its pesticide regulations. PETA and its affiliates are urging other countries to follow suit and working to end pesticide testing on dogs and all other animals.

What You Can Do

Each of us can help prevent animal suffering and deaths by buying cruelty-free products, donating only to charities that don’t experiment on animals, requesting alternatives to animal dissection, demanding the immediate implementation of humane and effective non-animal tests by government agencies and corporations, and calling on our alma maters to stop experimenting on animals.
