Kasabian Gives Fur the Cold Shoulder!
If you thought you couldn't love Kasabian any more than you already do, then get ready to punch the air in an excited fashion. Or in the ladies' case, get ready to swoon uncontrollably, because the Leicester lads are lending a hand to peta2 by defending the furry animals of the world and their right not to be turned into coats, collars or cuffs!
Like most people, the members of Kasabian were shocked to hear that this year, hunters will bludgeon to death more than 300,000 baby harp seals. The fur industry says that it is killing more seals because of an increase in demand for fur.
This means that anyone who buys a rabbit, mink or fox fur coat or a jacket trimmed with fur is creating a demand for the furs of baby seals, who are often skinned while they are still conscious. One ray of sunshine for animals is that they have the mighty Kasabian on their side, who don't wear any fur – old, new, cat, dog, fox, seal or hedgehog – none!
When asked what he thought of fur, singer and all-around handsome fellow Tom Meighan said, "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 don't wear fur; it's such an ugly thing to do". Fur-wearers, take heed.
