Within 24 hours of generating tens of thousands of e-mails, thousands of Facebook and Twitter posts on Air France's public sites, and hundreds of phone calls to the airline's cargo offices (so many that the airline shut down its phone line and Facebook wall!), PETA supporters convinced Air France to cancel the shipment of 60 monkeys to cruel deaths at a notoriously awful laboratory.

Thank you,

PETA

PETA has just learned that Air France plans to transport 60 monkeys this Wednesday (February 1) from Africa to the U.S. for use in cruel and deadly experiments at the notorious Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), where PETA recently conducted an investigation that unveiled shocking cruelty.

We need your help to urge the airline to cancel this shipment!

If Air France moves ahead with its plans, the monkeys, supplied by an African facility run by the infamous Bioculture, will be crammed into tiny wooden crates and shipped to Paris in the dark and terrifying cargo hold of a passenger plane. The monkeys will then be loaded onto a cargo plane and transported to Chicago O'Hare International Airport. Upon their arrival in the U.S. on February 2, the monkeys will be subjected to yet another exhausting trip as they are loaded into the back of a truck and transported to SNBL. In total, these terrified monkeys will endure more than 80 hours of grueling transport before they arrive at SNBL, where they will likely be tormented and killed in cruel experiments.

The monkeys are currently scheduled to arrive in the U.S. this Thursday, February 2. With time running out, your voice is needed now.

Please send an e-mail to Air France officials now and urge them to cancel this shipment and join the growing number of airlines who refuse to ship primates for use in invasive experiments.

      HAVING GOT AIR FRANCE NOT TO SHIP THE MONKEYS IS GREAT BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN THE MONKEYS WONT GET THERE BY ANOTHER ROUTE. WHAT WE NEED IS FOR ALL ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION TO STOP INMEDIATELY ALL OVER THE WORLD.
