Ask Major Airlines to Stop Transporting Nonhuman Primates Destined for Use in Research Laboratories
Last month, Air Canada announced that it would no longer transport nonhuman primates bound for use in research facilities in large part because of the power of public opinion. Air Canada joins a number of other major airlines, including American, Delta, Lufthansa, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Air China and many others that have stopped transporting nonhuman primates for research. Before we can count this as a true victory, we need to keep the momentum going and contact the following airlines that continue to transport nonhuman primates destined for use in laboratories and urge them to stop this practice.

Ask the USDA to Seize Abused Bears
In 2012, PETA conducted an undercover investigation at Chief Saunooke Bear Park (CSBP), a roadside collection of bear pits in Cherokee, North Carolina. CSBP confines bears to desolate concrete cells, where they are forced to beg for food and are deprived of all that is natural and important to them.
PETA’s investigator found that the bored and frustrated bears turn endlessly in circles. One of them routinely rocks back and forth—a sign of profound deprivation and stress. They bite the metal cage bars, which breaks their teeth. This is painful and can cause bone infections, so it requires veterinary care, but PETA’s investigator never saw a veterinarian at CSBP or the bears given any pain relief.
In June 2012, the USDA charged CSBP with violating the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) and requested that its license be revoked or suspended. PETA submitted its evidence, which shows that many apparent AWA violations continue to occur, to the USDA and asked that it confiscate CSBP’s bears.
Please take a moment to request that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) immediately confiscate all bears from CSBP and work with PETA to place them in a safe, accredited sanctuary.

Transportation Safety Administration: Stop losing our pets!
Sign the petition asking the TSA to implement a new policy on how to handle pets, including asking pet owners if they’d like to be screened in an enclosed room to reduce their pet’s stress and establishing a protocol on how to react if an animal does get loose.
