When you take a nice vacation with your family, you don't think about what other kind of cargo airlines are carrying. Along with keeping your luggage in their cargo space, certain airlines are also carrying primates. Companies such as Air Canada and Air France, are supporting and carrying these creatures captured from the wild to breed and to be shipped internationally to as test subjects for research.
They are stuffed in very cramped crates, bad ventilation and minimal protection against the temperature extremes. Just from the mere stress of the situation, some die before they even land.
Here is the list of airlines that do, or would fly primates for the research industry.
-China Eastern Airlines
-China Southern Airlines
Here are the ones that don't.
-Air Hong Kong
