When PETA learned that Sprint Nextel Corporation was airing a commercial that featured a chimpanzee in movie theaters, we immediately contacted the company to request that it pull the commercial and pledge never to use great apes in advertisements again. Sprint Nextel Corporation has failed even to respond to PETA to discuss the issue cooperatively.

To train great apes, trainers forcibly remove infants from their mothers. These babies are punched, kicked, and beaten with sticks and fists as part of the training process to ensure that they perform correctly in the fewest takes possible while on set. Great apes can live to be more than 60 years old, but at around 8 years of age, they become too powerful to be safely handled. They are often discarded at substandard roadside zoos or are simply warehoused.

Thank you for everything you do for animals!
