Razorlight Bear Their Teeth
The band has joined forces with animal rights group PETA...
Johnny Borrell and his Razorlight bandmates have signed a PETA2 (People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals) petition to end the killing of Canadian bears for Royal Guards hats.
The Spare a bear campaign is urging the Ministry Of Defence to stop the killing of the animals and use faux fur for the headgear instead.
The bands bassist Carl Dalemo said, I'm just asking you to sign the bearskins petition to save the beautiful Canadian bears from getting slaughtered to have their fur in the Queen's Guards' hats - it's a completely pointless exercise.
According to PETA stats it takes a whole bear hide to make one hat.
The light arent the only band to hook up with PETA " The Rakes, Morrissey and Lady Sovereign have all lent their support to previous campaigns.
