Last week, Justin Bieber spoke to a protester at Los Angeles International Airport about how Air France ships monkeys to their deaths.
Telling the protester, “Air France sucks!” the Biebs chatted briefly with the protester, took a leaflet, and even left with one of the group’s “Boycott Air France” slogan T-shirts. Pretty cool, eh?
Every year, more than 10,000 monkeys are shipped to laboratories in the United States. Many of the monkeys Air France flies to laboratories have been stolen from the wild and torn away from their families. Crammed into tiny wooden crates and transported in the cargo holds of passenger flights, they endure a terrifying journey. After landing, the animals are transported to lab facilities, where they face horrors such as mutilation, poisoning, food deprivation, infection with painful diseases, and psychological torment.
Tell Air France to join every other major airline in the world by not shipping monkeys to their deaths in laboratories!
