VICTORY: Air China Will Stop Shipping Monkeys to Laboratories

Posted by on August 1, 2012 | Permalink

Following vigorous campaigning by PETA and its affiliates, Air China has confirmed that it’s joining nearly every other airline worldwide by refusing to transport primates to laboratories.

This victory is due to the thousands of concerned people around the world who contacted Air China through PETA affiliate action alerts, generating tens of thousands of e-mails to Air China’s offices around the world.

Non-human primates are transported from countries such as China, Mauritius, Cambodia, Vietnam and Indonesia to the EU and US to be imprisoned in laboratories and tormented in experiments. Some are bred in captivity in cramped, squalid monkey factory farms, while others are stolen from their families in the wild.

With Air China no longer participating in this bloody trade, experimenters will find it harder to get their hands on more victims.

Thank you so much for your efforts for animals. We could never have achieved this or anything we do without you!
