Chicago – Please see PETA’s call for prosecution of Alliance Ground International staff:

Alliance Ground International staff should be prosecuted for cruelty to animals for the slow, awful death of the German shepherd who was left without food and water for three days in an airport warehouse, and the company’s USDA license should be revoked. Alliance also handles shipments from Volga-Dnepr Airlines, which transports monkeys to the U.S. to be used in painful experiments, and that needs to stop. The company is incompetent and uncaring and should never again be trusted with the life of any animal—including monkeys who are torn away from their families, shoved into crates, and traumatized by a transoceanic flight.

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For more information, please visit
