Kasabian Join Seal Protest
British rockers Kasabian are following in Morrissey's footsteps by protesting against Canada's annual seal hunt. Former The Smiths star Morrissey has long criticised the country for its yearly cull and has vowed never to perform in Canada while the practice is still in force. And now Kasabian have signed a petition, launched by People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA), which appeals against the Canadian government's decision to allow the killing of baby harp seals. Frontman Tom Meighan says, "I think it's just common sense really, I mean, of course I don't think it's OK to smash a baby seal's skull. I'd never wear fur, it's such an ugly thing to do."
