Actor James Cromwell will insert his 6-foot, 7-inch body into a shipping crate on Monday at Los Angeles International Airport to protest Air France’s policy of accepting live animal as cargo.

Air France is among the only major international airlines that ships monkeys as cargo, according to PETA. The animal rights group says Air France shipped more than 5,500 monkeys to the United States last year. In February, PETA organized a similar protest against China Southern. 

“The real horror story is the pain and terror of the monkeys in Air France’s cargo holds beneath the feet of unsuspecting passengers,” Cromwell said in a release. “My friends at PETA and I are telling Air France that cruelty shouldn’t fly and that the airline needs to join the rest of the industry in refusing to deliver primates to their deaths in laboratories.”

The protest will happen at noon Monday at the Tom Bradley International Terminal. You might want to stop by if you’re in the area. It should be scene.

    I recognized the monkey but who is James Cromwell?

    This is what happens when washed up actors with over inflated egos don’t get any work for a while.

    Would suggest increasing press exposure to this story by stuffing Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, and the late Fred Phelps in the same container…

    So are they supposed to travel in the seat next to some unfortunate passenger?
