The BUAV has received a tip-off that ABX Air, a cargo airline head quartered in Ohio, USA, is scheduled to transport hundreds of monkeys from China to Texas on 2nd June. This recent photograph taken in China shows monkeys in wooden crates being loaded onto an ABX Air aircraft for an earlier shipment.
Thanks to the BUAV's Cargo Cruelty campaign, key international airlines have over the years stopped transporting primates destined for research. This is having a major impact on the US primate research industry in securing regular supplies of monkeys from China, a major supplier to the USA. The USA is the world’s largest importer of monkeys for research and its primate companies are now commissioning cargo carriers to transport hundreds of monkeys in any one shipment from China to the USA.
