Victory! El Al Will Not Ship Monkeys to Labs

Written by PETA | June 18, 2012

UPDATE: After PETA asked supporters to contact El Al Airlines and urge the company to cancel this shipment, the airline received more than 10,000 e-mails and posts on its Facebook wall. El Al has now announced that it will not transport these 40 monkeys. Furthermore, El Al has confirmed that it will never again transport any primates for use in experimentation!

Last week, the High Court of Israel ruled that the Mazor breeding farm, which is associated with the notorious primate breeder Bioculture, cannot export 50 monkeys to a U.S. laboratory because they were captured in the wild. Because the majority of Mazor’s monkeys are wild-caught, this means it’s unlikely that Mazor will be able to sell these animals to laboratories.  

Unfortunately, the court is allowing Mazor to export 40 other monkeys who were born in captivity. In a shocking betrayal, El Al Airlines is slated to ship the monkeys despite the company’s earlier promise that it would not transport primates to laboratories.

A Cruel Fate

If this shipment isn’t stopped—reportedly, these monkeys are scheduled to be shipped soon on an El Al Airlines international flight—these 40 monkeys will go to Shin Nippon Biomedical Laboratories (SNBL), where they will be used in cruel and almost certainly fatal experiments.

SNBL is the vile facility in Washington state that PETA exposed with photographs and video footage released to us by a whistleblower. You may also recall that a monkey was sent through a cage washer and scalded to death at SNBL and that this facility has a long track record of violating federal animal welfare laws.

    Please cancel all involvements pertaining to the shipment of primates or other animals to laboratories in the name of experimentation. Their suffering, from the very onset of their horrifying journeys, forced in dark and unfamiliar wooden closed crates, having been torn from their families, and stacked in the noisy scary cargo part of an airplane is only the beginning of the tortuous and barbaric road that awaits them. Please SAY NO to this transport! Form a global alliance with ALL airlines to not be a part of animal abuse. Join the other airlines that have taken a stand and are respected for it. This has got to be a GLOBAL thing. DO IT NOW!

    It is unbelievable that exactly in the US you hear of so much abuse to animals, there is a long way to go and there is only one to follow, show everyone what happens and ask for people to reject it openly. Congratulations PETA for your excellent work in doing that . To those who believe like I do , please remember that God will give you double what you give, and that goes for mercy and compassion too ! Animals are God´s creatures dont forget that !!!
