We recently told you about rock legend Morrissey’s upcoming autobiography and continued animal advocacy. Now the longtime animal rights activist has written a letter urging a leading Japanese clothing company, Uniqlo, to shun farmers who procure wool from a controversial method called ‘mulesing.’

Mulesing removes chunks of sheeps’ flesh along with wool to prevent maggot infestation. The practice is used by some Austrailian farmers for sheep exportation.

On behalf of the Asian wing of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, Morrissey writes, “Years ago, I wrote a song called Meat Is Murder, and today I’m tempted to write a follow-up called Mulesing Is Misery… New Zealand farmers did away with mulesing nearly a decade ago, leaving Australia as the only country in the world that still clings to this cruel and barbaric abomination. Won’t you please join the many international companies that have implemented a ban on wool from mulesed lambs?”
