FROM People for the ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

ACTION

Recently Air India implemented a companywide ban on shipping animals to laboratories. However, the company has suddenly abandoned that policy, bowing to pressure from greedy, fear-mongering animal experimenters, and has decided to once again transport animals to laboratories to be subjected to lives of misery and pain and a premature death.

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

From PETA:

I have some concerning news to share and need your help urgently to save animals from cruelty in laboratories.

Recently, Air India implemented a companywide ban on shipping animals to laboratories. However, the company has suddenly abandoned that policy, bowing to pressure from greedy, fear-mongering animal experimenters, and has decided to once again transport animals to laboratories to be subjected to lives of misery and pain and a premature death.

In one recent experiment in India, beagle dogs had their legs cut open so that transmitters could be inserted into them, had tubes forced into their penises, and were repeatedly injected with experimental drugs.

Jet Airways, India's second-largest airline has confirmed that it "refuse[s] to carry live animals for laboratory experiments." Likewise, major international carriers, including FedEx, UPS, DHL, Cathay Pacific, Korean Airlines, Qantas, and EVA Air, prohibit any shipments of animals destined for experiments.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
