PETA is beyond angry at Iran for launching a monkey in space in an attempt to conquer space.
Photos have surfaced showing a visibly terrified monkey strapped to a "pod" with duct tape and the sad thing…this ISN'T the first time Iran has tried to send a monkey in space.
After sending a mouse, turtle, and worms into space in 2010, the Iranian government tried to launch a monkey in 2011 but failed.
PETA believes the launch harkens to the days of the space race in the 1950s and they are appalled by the cruel act.
So sad..this monkey does not deserve this treatment!!!
