Kasabian frontman, Tom Meighan, has launched a scathing attack on the fur industry in light of news that around 300 thousand baby seals are bludgeoned to death in Canada.

The rocker spoke to Peta2 who are currently protesting against the barbaric killing of new-born seals in Canada. The government claims that these 'culls' are necessary to prevent swelling numbers.

An agitated 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".
