Woo! Way to go United Airlines!
The fight against labs using monkeys as test animals has been picking up, and United Airlines has joined in.
PETA released a statement about United's new policy that said:
"The new policy reads, 'We do not book, accept or transport primates to or from medical research facilities.'"
We bet that made PETA pretty happy!
We already mentioned that PETA got the Army to discharge their lab monkeys, so this is just another win!
It's so cruel to torture innocent creatures when there are other options and simulations available.
We wouldn't be surprised if United sees more business from animal-friendly flyers now!
Way to be part of the solution, United!
