Morrissey and Johnny Marr, former members of the rock band The Smiths, have joined up to support the League Against Cruel Sports, a UK-based charity committed to protecting animals affected by sport hunting, such as deer, foxes, and rabbits. The group also hopes to end dog fighting, greyhound racing, and bullfighting. Marr, an Oscar nominee for his work on Inception, says of sport hunting, “I feel that those who think it’s OK to abuse animals for so-called sport are ignorant.” The musicians have joined comedian Ricky Gervais and others in their support for the organization.
