Tell Air France: Don't Ship Monkeys to Their Deaths!

Posted January 30, 2012 by Rachelle Owen

This Wednesday, Air France plans to transport 60 monkeys from Africa to the U.S. for use in cruel and deadly experiments at the notorious Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL).

 

If Air France moves ahead with its plan, the monkeys will be crammed into tiny wooden crates and shipped first in the dark and terrifying cargo hold of a passenger flight from an African facility run by the infamous Bioculture to Paris. 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.


RAISE YOUR VOICE NOW: Air France is trying to ignore our concerns and has shut down phone lines and public comments on its Facebook page. Please call the company’s cargo division customer service line at 773-686-8100 (press 1) and try your best to reach a live person who can listen to your pleas for compassion.

Please also send a quick e-mail to Air France officials at dagadow@airfrance.fr, Customer-Service.ORD@afklcargo.com, and points.

    I called air France they hung up on me after I finished saying that they need to stop shipping monkeys for experiments and that I would spread the word so no one uses air France. They didn’t say anything but at least they waited until I was done talking to hang up on me! Love

    Shame on France, they easily could ban government funded torture on primates and other animals that haven’t proven at all to help human health, and they wouldn’t have horrible stuff like this anymore

    THE PLAN HAS GONE AHEAD: AIR FRANCE Asked a conosociated airlines to ship the monekeys despite what it said. I think Peta should take this into account and seriously start a campaign against Air France.

    Stop the insane cruelty of Experimenting on Animals!! What is man without animals? If all the animals were gone, man would die from great loneliness of spirit, for wahtever happens to the animals also happens to man. Please do the right thing and let the innocent monkeys free, we all have the rights to freedom.

    Chimps and orangutans are two of the top 10 creatures in the world, after humans. Would you do this to your own child?

    We are planning a trip to France this summer. I don’t care if we have to pay more, we’re NOT taking Air France.

    Have a backbone, Air France – turn down the big bucks and refuse to ship these animals to their torture. You have a choice.

    The European Union stopped unnecessary experiments on animals. France is a member of the EU, yet the do not flinch shipping the animals to their death. Hypocrites !

    “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.. I hold that, the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man”

    Air France may take pains to avoid public criticism or listen to reason. But one thing they CANNOT ignore is public outrage that informs them they will lose money. DO NOT PATRONIZE AIR FRANCE AND TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO DO THE SAME. When they start losing money, they’ll suddenly be willing to listen. It’s sad but true that to get heard, sometimes you have to hurt people and companies in their pockets, because too often that’s where their brains arelocated.

    Do you have an email address so I can email them – I am Based in the UK and that will enable me to contact them. It’s about time all animal testing etc was banned, it infuriates me that a certain section of the human race think it is acceptable to put these poor creatures through immeasurable pain and horror in the name of “research”

      People need to start taking action. Nothing speaks louder than money, so if Air France starts loosing clients, that means that they will be loosing out on profits, in which they will have to stop this madness.

    I just called the number you provided and they gave me the number for the Corporate office in New York, which is (212)-830-4000 and the number is not working it just keeps making a beeping noise. When I called the original number the lady who I spoke with didn’t have any information and said I should call corporate. I cant get through to any one there however :( What else should I try?

    Your arrogance is nauseating! If you have just an ounce of compassion, stop transporting these monkeys to lives of unthinkable cruelty now! Join the airlines who have sworn off cruelty by disallowing chimps on their planes!!!
