URGENT: Airlines Issue Primates a One-Way Ticket to HELL

Posted December 6, 2011 by Rachelle Owen

Every year, more than 124,000 primates are tormented and killed in U.S. laboratories.

 

So, where do they come from? For tens of thousands of other primates, the journey begins thousands of miles away in Asia and Africa, where they are bred in cramped, squalid breeding mills or are trapped or netted in the wild.

Ripped away from their families, the traumatized primates are shoved into cramped wooden crates and shipped in the noisy and terrifying cargo holds of planes, often with unsuspecting passengers just a few feet above them.

One of the worst drivers of the miserable primate trade is animal testing conglomerate Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), which brings nearly 3,000 primates into the U.S. each year for use in experimentation. Recent photos and video footage leaked to PETA by a whistleblower at an SNBL laboratory in Everett, Washington, show sick, distraught monkeys imprisoned in barren steel cages. Monkeys suffered untreated wounds from being stabbed repeatedly with needles to have blood drawn multiple times a day. Workers handling the monkeys were so rough that they bloodied the animals’ noses and broke their fingers and toes.

So far,  Air Canada, Air China, Air France, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Philippine Airlines, and Vietnam Airlines have refused to stop shipping animals to their deaths.

    Per cio’ che riguarda invece Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), che porta quasi 3.000 primati negli Stati Uniti ogni anno per l’utilizzo in sperimentazione…!Be’ sarebbe ora che si vergognasse di questo tristissimo “primato”!!!

    Stop all this unnecessary testing and experiments. Animals are God’s creatures to live free and in peace, not be confined and put through torture!

    These ignorant people are disgusting and evil. Ghandi said it best “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” It is, for these scumbags, only about making a dollar. To these fools I say, “not everything is about money and in a humane and moral society their are certain things you DO NOT do for money.” Protection of the innocent and non-consenting is a MUST at all times.
