The airline that transported a group of monkeys to the United States before a truck carrying them to a lab in Pennsylvania slammed into a dump truck has vowed it will no longer transport primates to the U.S. (www.nydailynews.com) Altro...

Seems they should have been carried in something which would have withstood a crash better and not allowed the release of them. Would like to see a pix of how they were shipped.

Apparently wooden crates.

My conspiracy theory: Embarrassed by the truck accident, the airline says they will no longer transport monkeys (to get free publicity). The airline continues to transport monkeys and no one notices. If they do, the airline just replies, "What do we have to do with highway travel?" They look smart, and again, receive more free advertising.

They won't transport by air because of a crash on a highway? Curiouser and curiouser.....

Isn’t air travel supposed to be safer than road travel?

Ding ding ding! You win the Kewpee doll! Speaking of which - I haven't had an Olive Burger from Kewpee's on the south side of Lansing in some time. Is it still out there? I think it was near the interstate...

They have no compunction with transporting people who act like monkeys in the passenger compartment, so what's the big deal??
bdjam
This is why there should be no animal testing. Three monkeys, through no fault of their own, were euthanized because they were lose for a day. Do you do that to your dog if they get out of the yard?

What SO-CALLED 'HUMANS' do to animals is just VILE!! One word......KARMA!

Sorry that you feel that cruelty and torture of animals are just ok in your book.
What a shame you feel that way.

Rotten - I agree. We should be using death row prisoners for that research!

Posts like this make me wish FA had a "clap" emoji - cause this one deserves it. Bravo, sir!

Yeah? Recently sat down and had some monkey on a stick, did ya? Or how about some dog & dip? Oh I know - kitten nuggets are your bag, eh?

assuming you're equating what you personally unilaterally designate as "intelligence" with not being a natural food item for omnivorous humans: pigs are some of the smartest animals in the animal kingdom. and the most delicious. mmmmmmmmm....bacon......drools..... (in homer simpson voice of course)

(though I suppose they do admittedly get their revenge on us with the later heart attacks and clogged arteries - well played, miss piggy!)

for you downvoters - monkey on a stick is a real thing.... try using that airplane to travel to other countries and experience other cultures once in a while. you might learn a thing or three.

For goodness sake, did the little monksters refuse to wear a mask while flying?

No more experiments on animals!

then why are we reading a story about monkeys that got in an accident on the freeway?

when socio-political agendas no longer invade aviation airspace - then we can re-instate the distinction between the two.

Tell that to the millions of human lives saved over the years due to monkey experiments

and the 5.71 million lives prematurely ended in the last 2 years due to them, as well.

The WuFlu (supposedly) has now claimed 5.71M. It was created in a lab and tested upon (drumroll...) monkeys!

Those are the dots. It's on you to connect them.

Brian. I’ve reported srobak so they are aware. We’ll see what kind of place FA wants to run. He also uses a syringe swastika as an icon and I’d bet that’s against the TOS as well.

It's not a swastika - it is the government symbol of the Biden/Fauci mandate. Sorry if you don't like it.

Let me get this strait in my head here.
The truck that crashed was most definitely on the ground. So, why are they refusing to ship via the air?

Three got away and the next night were "found and euthanized". That's a euphemistic way of saying 'tracked down by dogs and shot'.

I'm just here to watch the political rhetoric and hatred between posters.....carry on....

SORRY....
Unable to find a connection between airflight and monkey truck on road crash.
.
How is this related to air travel?
Keep absurd politics out of Aviation news.

Thanks from Charley

Kenya Airways is and made that connection because they were the ones that transported them to begin with. Now - how is it that an airline's decision as to what they are not transporting political in nature to you, exactly?

Baby monks are torn from their Mom’s teat for used in testing or to be sold as pets in Asia & Africa (same thing happens to chimpanzees, bobobo’s, other primates). Entire families of monks & primates are killed just for the babies or yearlings.

I’ve seen pictures of babies/yearlings cuddled& clinging together for comfort & security; & of baby monks trying to get milk from its dried up Mom while in a lab setting. Sad & heartbreaking, not only for them, but to our closest biological relatives
jbsimms
@ the same time, not uncommon in less developed Africa & South America to kill a family for food & keep the babies for later; or in other cases, use as a ‘Black Magic’ (Witch Doctor type) medicinal purposes.

Nope. FA has demonstrated it is rapidly filling with ignorant koolaid consumers and people who don't understand how posts work.

Yeah, Fauci dedicated his entire life to being a Dr. just to tell rednecks to wear a mask, LMAO.
Stop watching Faux News for Christ's sake.

So I watch read all news outlets. Fauci and his $450,000 and his wife (Dr Grady PhD) works in his Dept makes $240,000 per year to tell us to mask and don’t mask to expect Armageddon then maybe not to expect 17 boosters but maybe 15. They are a FRAUD

That pay attention trope is old. You obviously don’t pay attention and have some antivax/pro-trump lesions on your brain. When you spew like you do, you reveal a big lack of intelligence.

Trump is a jackhole. The jab is not a vaccination. Know the difference - the fact that you do not reveals your lack of intelligence and exemplifies precisely why you do need to pay more attention.

I totally disagree with animal testing. It is repugnant to torture an animal in the name of science.
In Richmond, Virginia they simply slapped the hand of an animal cruelty organization after the media reported that many dogs were mistreated and abused.
I commend anyone especially an airline that doesn’t want to be a part of this.
