A dozen beagles scheduled to be euthanized after eating agricultural chemicals in a lab are to get new homes. The company is producing the chemical reports.
The company decides that they would stop the long year study they had been conducting on the products. They have taken it upon themselves to make sure that the animals get a home.
The announcement made by the company was accompanied by a petition drive with 300,000 signatures from the Human Society. The undercover investigations done showed perturbing images and videos of the beagles, which the researches decided to euthanize immediately.
For the past 100 days, an investigator reported about two dozen of the research that demanded tests on the dogs. To the shock of the society, the investigator uncovered that the dogs were euthanized at the end of their study. And the other dogs that were left alive were struggling with any health-related issue. This list includes thirty-six beagles that they experimented on for an AgroSciences pesticide.
The investigation also revealed, a tube for extraditing substances, pushed down the throat of the beagles.
Corteva was lauded for their decision to end the research.
Corteva had formerly announced that there are good and better methods to gain the necessary data needed. Pushing beagles to absorb or take in agricultural chemicals is totally unacceptable by the regulations in Brazil.
Corteva spoke on Monday that the Brazilian authorities had given a release telling the research to stop. Which then followed with Corteva’s coaction with the Humane Society.
Some of the beagles died at the lab when another study using some dug substances. The Humane Society reported.
The company indicates how happy they are since all their efforts did not go to waste. And also stated that it is also another positive effect of their works over the years. They won’t stop, reducing, refining, and replacing studies done on animals.
The Spokesperson from Corteva did not state or indicate when the dogs will get new families.
Thankfully, the research has ended. Now they would take their time to make sure that these dogs be giving appropriate homes that they desire.
