After Air China, China Eastern Airlines, Hainan Airlines, and other leading Chinese airlines have stopped shipping primates to misery and death in laboratories, experimenters are running out of ways to get their hands on monkeys from China, the largest exporter of nonhuman primates to the U.S. each year.
Unfortunately, PETA U.S. has received information indicating that China Southern Airlines—which previously announced that it had ended the practice—has resumed this bloody business, quietly bowing to pressure from laboratories desperate to continue profiting from abusing monkeys in barbaric experiments. We need your help to convince this airline to do the right thing.
Please take a minute of your time to urge China Southern Airlines to join every other major airline in China by reinstating its ban on shipping primates to laboratories.
- China Southern Airlines
I was dismayed to learn that China Southern Airlines has broken its promise and begun shipping primates to laboratories once again. Nearly every airline in the world--including all other major carriers in China--has banned this barbaric practice because potential customers have made it clear that they won't support companies that transport monkeys to laboratories to be tormented in painful experiments.
I won't be flying with China Southern Airlines until you decide to join other leading airlines by reinstating your ban on shipping primates destined for laboratories. I will also be encouraging my friends and family members to do the same.
