If you were traveling through Los Angeles Airport on Monday, you would've seen more than just long lines and baggage carousels. In fact, you would've seen Actor James Cromwell locked inside a shipping crate, protesting the transport of lab primates by AirFrance, the only major airline to continue the practice.
Cromwell, who appeared in "Babe," "The Green Mile," "Six Feet Under" and "American Horror Story," has long been an outspoken animal activist -- he became a vegan while playing the character of Farmer Hoggett in 1995's "Babe."
Cromwell joined members of PETA on Monday, who are spearheading a campaign to urge AirFrance to stop shipping primates meant for laboratories in their planes. Air France shipped at least 5,500 monkeys to U.S. laboratories in 2013 -- many of which have to spend 30 hours in a cargo hold before reaching their destination. China Southern Airlines, the only other major carrier to ship lab monkeys, announced it would stop doing so last month.
