Please HELP Monkeys ~ Ask Airlines to Stop Shipping Primates to Labs

If you care about animals, then please watch this video and take a stand and end torture to monkeys.  I don’t know how these heartless b@stards can commit these egregious acts against such kind, caring, innocent animals.  I can only hope that what goes around comes around and these evil humans receive their comeuppance!

From Peta:

Every year, tens of thousands of nonhuman primates are transported from countries such as China, Mauritius, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Indonesia to the U.S. to be imprisoned in laboratories and tormented in experiments. Some are bred in captivity on cramped, squalid monkey factory farms, while others are stolen from their families in the wild.

The traumatized monkeys are crammed into small wooden crates and transported in the backs of trucks and the dark and terrifying cargo holds of planes, often on passenger flights just below unsuspecting customers.

According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, nearly 23,000 nonhuman primates were brought into the U.S. in 2010—nearly all of them destined for laboratories. Nearly 3,000 monkeys were imported by animal testing conglomerate Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), where recent photos and video footage leaked by a whistleblower show sick, distraught monkeys suffering horribly from tests in which they were injected with experimental chemicals.

Almost every major airline in the world—including Delta Air Lines, American Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways, Air China, China Southern Airlines, China Eastern AirlinesTAM Airlines, Hainan Airlines, El Al Airlines, and dozens of others—refuses to take any part in this violent industry and prohibits the transportation of primates to laboratories. However, an increasingly small group of airlines—including Air France, Philippine Airlines, and Vietnam Airlines—continues to profit from animals’ misery by transporting monkeys destined for U.S. laboratories.

Please be a voice for the monkeys who are suffering in the primate trade. Take a minute of your time now to urge airlines that still transport monkeys to U.S. laboratories to join their peers and adopt a formal policy against the transportation of nonhuman primates for use in experiments.

PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION

OUR TAX DOLLARS PAY FOR THE FUNDING SO THAT VIVISECTION LABS CAN TORTURE ANIMALS! Is that how you want your tax dollars used? I know I don’t. – it has been proven time an again that animals respond to medications and treatments different than humans.

  1. I signed the petition and will share a link to this post on our facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/TheAnimalSpirits asking others to sign.

    Thank you for taking action to influence others to speak out against ALL who are taking part in the inhumanity and unbelievable cruelty inflicted upon innocent, sentient, living beings who are being taken against their will and used without compassion in laboratory testing facilities.

    • Thank you for spreading the word. 🙂

      Animal Testing needs to end NOW! People need to wake up. They need to understand and learn what it means when products they use are “tested on animals”.
