Morrissey: 'Killing Baby Seals With Lightning Brutality Is Now Canada's Primary Global Image'
Former Smiths frontman and animal rights activist Morrissey has taken to semi-official fan siteĀ True to You to voice his disgust at Canadian seal hunting.

In the post, Morrissey criticizes Canada's "inhumane" treatment of the animals, and describes the country as "fashionably dead." You can check out the full post below:

"This sorrowful Canada.

"The seal hunt in Canada is struggling to make a start this year due to almost no markets, and China especially is refusing to sell Canadian seal meat. Thank you, China!

"China has stated that 'animal rights protests' are the reason why they have dropped Canada's custom.

"The annual East Coast seal hunt/kill started Monday - against a strong wave of trade and court challenges. Europe continues its ban on seal products.

"Gail Shea, the federal Fisheries Minister for Canada, says that baby seals are 'killed humanely,' and explains how the baby seals are shot by high-powered rifles. Is this a death that Gail Shea would wish for herself? Would it make her happy to be shot by a high-powered rifle? If she considers such butchery to be so 'humane,' why doesn't she place herself amongst the tens of thousands of grey-coated harp seals that will be slaughtered within the next few weeks? She could then test the humane aspect of having her head blown off for herself. Only then could she be thought to speak with any authority on the subject.

"Canada is a beautiful country, and the people of Canada are good people. But good people are often ineffectual. Internationally, Canada's sorry image is due entirely to its seal slaughter - which is greedy and barbaric, and it is dismaying to witness such ignorance in 2014. Sound reason tells us that only those of the thinnest intellect wear animal fur, and because the Canadian government are concerned with animals only economically, killing baby seals with lightning brutality is now Canada's primary global image. Until this annual massacre is abolished, Canada itself is regrettably fashionably dead.


Morrissey's new studio album, titled "World Peace Is None of Your Business," is scheduled for release this summer.
