Air France: Stop Shipping Primates to Laboratories

  • By: SUE LEE
  • Target: Air France Airlines

Please sign and share worldwide in an effort to stop Air France Airlines from shipping all primates to laboratories. This is the only airline and the largest trafficker that transports frightened, terrified monkeys with a fate of imprisonment and torture. Other major airlines have stopped doing so, including Air China has stopped doing so and we have to demand Air France to follow suit and protect the monkeys from the barbaric labs and testing.

So many monkeys are snatched right from their families within the wild and placed in cold, tiny wooden cages to sit on a plane that is headed to a laboratory. These poor babies are terrified in the dark, cargo space of these flights. However, most flights have refused to take these animals to laboratories for testing and worse, where they may enduremutilation, poisoning, food deprivation, infection with painful diseases and psychological torment.

Although other airlines have stopped transporting these monkeys for testing and literally banned such actions, Air France is continuing to do so. A spokesperson for PETA has said “Prior to this announcement, China Southern was the only major airline other than Air France that still shipped primates to laboratories. China Southern shipped monkeys to laboratories in the EU and US, where they were poisoned, crippled and mutilated in cruel experiments. Our campaigns (against the airline’s policies) included regular protests at airports and company offices in Chicago, London, Los Angeles, Taiwan and Tokyo, and through PETA affiliate websites, more than 100,000 people sent e-mails to China Southern urging it to stop shipping primates.”

We have to encourage Air France Airlines to stop the transport of primates like these darling little monkeys and ensure them the relief for the countless monkeys who would otherwise have continued to be handed “a one-way ticket to experimentation and death.” Please sign and share worldwide in an effort to stop Air France Airlines from shipping all primates to laboratories. This is the only airline and the largest trafficker that transports frightened, terrified monkeys with a fate of imprisonment and torture. Other major airlines have stopped doing so, including Air China has stopped doing so and we have to demand Air France to follow suit and protect the monkeys from the barbaric labs and testing.

 


Air France Airlines – Please stop transporting primates to laboratories for testing and worse, where they may enduremutilation, poisoning, food deprivation, infection with painful diseases and psychological torment. Your airlines in the only one doing so at this time; most others have stopped shipping these poor animals out in horrific conditions to face a sure death. Please work along with PETA in an effort to stop laboratory testing by not allowing them on your planes. Do not ship primates to laboratories where they will eventually meet their end! Allow them to stay in their own habitats where they belong.
