Don’t Blast Monkeys Into Outer Space

Baker-the-monkey-public-domain

Target: Sergey Ivanovich Kislyak, Russian Diplomat and Ambassador to the U.S.

Goal: Send monkeys to sanctuary rather than space.

Russia is currently training four monkeys to be sent to Mars in 2017. The four macaques being trained have years of stressful experiments and tests ahead of them. Then, after all their training, they will be strapped down in capsules and shot into space. Space travel is already a frightening experience for humans but, to an animal that has no idea what is going on, the experience is terrifying.

This is a complete step backwards for space exploration. NASA, the European Space Agency and the Chinese National Space Administration have continued their work in space without the use of primates due to the advance technology that is now available.

If these four monkeys are sent to space, it is very unlikely they will make the return trip. Sign this petition and demand that these monkeys are sent to a sanctuary rather than to space.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Kislyak,

Russia is planning on sending four monkeys to Mars in 2017. These monkeys are currently being subjected to countless stressful and frightening experiments and then will have to deal with the stressful endeavor of space exploration. This is inhumane and unnecessary.

Thanks to modern technology, there are many other ways to study space without the use of primates. NASA, the European Space Agency and the Chinese National Space Administration have continued their work in space without using primates.

If these monkeys are sent it Mars, it is very unlikely they will survive. Please urge Russia to consider other options for future space exploration that do not cost lives. These monkeys should be sent to a sanctuary where they can live a happy life.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Personally, I’d like to see Vladimir Putin go instead of the monkeys. Provided he could be trained as well as they are.

    Send Putin great idea

  3. How can humans keep using innocent animals for useless ‘experiments’ that result only the animals death…if animals in shelters know what is going to happen to them when they’re being led to the ‘killing room’, their abject fear being led to a rocket just to have the door shut behind them I’m sure is HORRENDOUS…send these monkeys to a refuge where they can spend their remaining years with other monkeys…not to a certain death…again,HEY KNOW!!! Don’t think otherwise!!!

  4. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME ???
    HOW CAN YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT KNOWING THESE MONSTERS ARE DOING THIS SHIT TO INNOCENT ANIMALS AND ENJOYING IT ?
    YOU NEED A WAKE UP CALL . I WILL NOT BE KIND IN THIS LETTER PLEADING YOU BECAUSE NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO BEG YOU TO NOT PERMIT THESE HORRIFIC ACTS FROM HAPPENING. THESE BASTARDS INFLICTING THIS SHIT ARE NOT HUMANS…YOU HAVE TO HAVE HUMANITY TO BE THAT.
    YOU MAKE THIS MONSTEROUS SHIT STOP NOW ! I WISH THE LONGEST AND MOST PAINFUL DEATH TO ALL WHO HAVE INFLICTED THE TORTURE AND MURDER ON THESE ANIMALS AND ALL THOSE WHO HAVE TURNED A BLIND EYE AND PERMITTED THIS.
    GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER BECAUSE KARMA IS A BITCH. THESE ARE ANIMALS WITH REAL FEELINGS OF PAIN, AND INTELLIGENCE.
    WHAT YOU DONT STOP IS JUST CRIMINAL. GOD HELP YOUR DECISION . YOUR AFTERLIFE IS ALL UP TO YOUR CHOICES…BUT RIGHT NOW YOUR JUST SHIT FOR LETTING THIS HAPPEN AND FORCING PEOPLE TO PLEA TO SAVE THESE ANIMALS WHICH SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN VICTIMS IN THE FIRST PLACE !

    You can either turn sorrowfully or
    carelessly away from an animal in
    distress or summon the courage to run
    forward and help.
    We can judge the heart of a person by their treatment of
    animals.

  5. If you use such advanced technology (based on a more evolved MINDSET) as energy-field-measuring GDV units in your Russian hospitals for the past 15 years, how can you even BEGIN to justify such an outmoded, barbaric and ignorant experiment as sending sentient but wholly UNWILLING, living beings into space, AGAIN, especially KNOWING FULL WELL these primates will not only be killed, but will SUFFER UNIMAGINABLY, both IN YOUR LABS BEFOREHAND, and during such a horrific trip?!?!?!?! A total dichotomy of ‘thinking’!!! What is wrong with your stupid, backwards, puny brains???!!! All for what? — ANOTHER immature “race” (to Mars this time) against the Americans? Why don’t you focus your intent upon fixing our damaged EARTH, instead of rushing to infect and wreck yet ANOTHER planet, diabolically hurting ever MORE nonhuman beings in this sick, unending, evil human plague of a process?!!

  6. Send off abusers of animals, women, and children.

  7. Do NOT send these monkeys into space — implement methods resulting from our technological advances — it’s matter of life & death for these monkeys — let’s be rational — let’s be compassionate — send these beautiful monkeys to a Sanctuary to live happy, healthy & comfortable lives — keep in mind that FOR DECADES not a soul has been sending animals into outer space.
