Air India Teams Up With PETA
Air India stops transporting animals to labs
PUNE, India - International airline Air India has confirmed that it has stopped transporting animals to laboratories, where they are cruelly confined, experimented on and eventually killed.
The confirmation was issued in a statement following discussions with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India. In an e-mail to PETA, Air India confirmed that a circular was sent to all stations in its network that instructs them not to accept animals that are being transported for experimental purposes and that the situation will be closely monitored.
PETA is now contacting all other Indian carriers and urging them to make the same commitment.
