Ask Airline to Stop Shipping Monkeys to Be Tortured
BACKGROUND | SOURCE PETA
Air France claims to be making the sky “the best place on Earth.” However, Air France continues to ship monkeys to laboratories, making the sky a terrifying place for animals.
These monkeys spend their time in the sky crammed into tiny wooden crates—often in the dark cargo holds just underneath unsuspecting Air France passengers—before they arrive at notorious laboratories such as Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL) and Covance, where they will be tormented and killed in cruel experiments.
Partly because of PETA’s successful campaigns, almost all other airlines—including Air China, British Airways, Delta Air Lines, and American Airlines—now refuse to transport monkeys to laboratories.
With your support, we can help save monkeys from this cruel fate. Thank you!

SAMPLE LETTER, COURTESY BUAV
Dear Air France,
I was shocked to learn that your airline is involved in the transportation of monkeys to laboratories. It is unacceptable that these sensitive animals, ripped from their families and homes, are then subjected to the stress of being packed into small crates and shipped as cargo on your airline to end up in laboratories where they will suffer in experiments.
I urge you to join the increasing number of airlines that have made the decision to stop their involvement in this cruelty. Until you do, I will not be flying with your airline.
they landed one day,
and took man away.
for their version of science,
just sadistic play.
so when you send
monkeys to death
and to sorrow,
it could be you
