Science Has Proven That Dogs Can "Smell" a Bad Person


New research indicates that dogs might be able to ascertain whether or not someone is "bad."

It's a trope that's been repeated in tons of movies: animals having a "sixth sense" about a person. Whether it's a body-snatching sci-fi flick, a dog being able to point out a demon in disguise, or knowing who the real killer is, there's a long-held belief that animals, especially puppers, can "sniff out" a bad person.

Akiko Takoaka of Kyoto University in Japan concluded from the results of his three-part experiment that dogs are truly able to determine whether someone is trustworthy.

They picked a testing method and had the dog participate in a series of trials designed to see how it would react to a person who lied to them.
