New Policy Ends Export of Monkeys From China to U.S. to Be Cut Up, Poisoned, and Killed in Cruel Experiments
Chicago -- Following
a PETA campaign that included public protests, a flood of phone calls, and
hundreds of e-mails, China Eastern Airlines today informed PETA that it has
ended "transportation of laboratory primates as of Mar. 01,
within the primate-experimentation industry recently confirmed that China
Eastern Airlines had been the sole transporter of monkeys from China to

effectively ends all exports of primates from China for use in experiments.
Until now, more than half of all monkeys imported to U.S. laboratories—more

2012, PETA protested outside China Eastern's office at Los Angeles
International Airport, and in the past few months, PETA encouraged its members
to call the airline's cargo offices in the United States, including in Chicago,
Dallas, Los Angeles, and New York. The airline also received more than 100,000
protest e-mails from PETA supporters.
North American airline transports primates to laboratories. Air France,
Philippine Airlines, and Vietnam Airlines are the only remaining major
airlines that transport primates destined for experiments.
