Stop Air France From Shipping Monkeys to Their Deaths!
Every year, more than ten thousand nonhuman primates are transported to the U.S. to be imprisoned in laboratories and tormented in experiments.
Air France claims to be “making the sky the best place on Earth.” But in reality, the airline is making the sky a dangerous and scary place, as it is one of the largest traffickers of primates in the world. Air France continues to ship monkeys to laboratories, even though every other major airline in the world has stopped sending monkeys on these horrific one-way flights!
The monkeys Air France ships are bred in captivity on squalid factory farms or are snatched from the wild, torn away from their homes and families. Crammed into tiny wooden crates in the cargo holds on passenger and cargo flights, the monkeys endure a dark and terrifying journey. Upon arriving in the U.S., the animals are transported to dealers like Primate Products and laboratories—including Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories, Charles River Laboratories, and Covance, some of the largest importers of monkeys in the U.S.—where they are imprisoned and tormented in experiments.
All other major airlines in the world—including United Airlines, Aer Lingus, Air China, American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Delta Air Lines, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Lufthansa, China Southern Airlines, and Qantas—refuse to transport monkeys to laboratories. Air France even canceled an individual shipment of monkeys after a public outcry by PETA and its supporters. Now we must persuade Air France to end this cruelty for good
