Urgent update – monkeys on China Southern Airlines flight are destined for Covance in the US.
A sympathetic member of staff at Guangzhou airport has tipped off the BUAV about a shipment of primates transported by China Southern Airlines to Chicago. The shipment of 72 crates, which contains hundreds of long-tailed macaques, is due to land today, 7/20, at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) at 10:00 (CDT). We have also learned that the final destination of the monkeys is the contract research organization, Covance.
