You Did It: Air France Cancels Live Monkey Transport for Animal Testing!

Within a few hours of obtaining reports that Air France was planning to transport 60 live monkeys from Africa to a United States laboratory for use in animal experiments, PETA and several of our international affiliates quickly mobilised members and supporters to take action.

Within 24 hours, you and others like you managed to generate 68,000 e-mails, thousands of Facebook posts and tweets, and hundreds of calls. Thanks to your fast work and dedication, we are thrilled to confirm that Air France has cancelled plans to deliver these monkeys into the hands of experimenters!

This fantastic show of support proves once again that strength in numbers and coordinated actions can have a huge effect on companies. This victory couldn’t have been possible without your help. From all of us at PETA, a huge “Thank you!” to everyone who helped stop this transport! We are now urging Air France to create a formal policy to prohibit future shipments of primates to labs.

With this victory so fresh, please use your voice to influence the Home Office not to weaken protection laws for animals in laboratories in future.

    No animal should be in laboratories suffering pain and humiliation until you die. This is a terrible ordeal to put a creature through.

    VILE EVIL SLAVERY AND CRUELTY TO THE VOICELESS IS A DISGRACE AND NO HUMAN ON THIS PLANET HAS ANY RIGHT TO CAUSE TERROR AND PAIN AND TORTURE TO ANY LIVING CREATURE. THERE IS NO NEED FOR SUCH ABUSIVE SICKENING CALLOUS POINTLESS EXPERIMENTS ON ANIMALS EVER.

    It’s so easy for these airline companies to earn money through cruelty!!! They make me sick if it wasn’t for the fact that I have relations in Europe and Canada I wouldn’t be using planes at all!! SHAME ON YOU!!!!!

    What are they going to do with these monkeys if they’re not going to go to the experimenters?

    Lee Kurtz >> That is a question that doesn’t need an answer, really. I don’t know whether you are being concerned for them or that you’re suggesting that they’re better off going to the laboratories.

    Either way, they’ll end up someplace much better; A sanctuary that’ll care for them or they’ll leave this world without experiments being used on them.
    I doubt they’ll be let out in the wild since they were probably unfortunately bred to be “labrats”.

    Sick world we’re living in. Money talks and people are being prostituted parasites. Makes me sick to my stomach and makes me ashamed of being human.
