morrissey.jpg(ChartAttack) Morrissey is a well-known animal rights supporter, and was very outspoken last year in his criticism of Canada’s annual seal hunt, going so far as to say that he’d never perform here as long as the hunt continues. So it shouldn’t come as a shock that he has a soft spot for squirrels. Consider this item from the World Entertainment News Network a public service announcement from the former Smiths singer:

Mystech: Rest assured, Morrissey, I will take every effort to make sure the squirrels are not merely “concussed”.

“I have scraped many squirrels off roads. Because often when we are driving and we see a squirrel we assume they’re dead — but they’re not. They’re just concussed. I always stop and lift them to the side of the road. So the next time you see a squirrel on the side of the road, stop and make sure.”

Chart officially offers $10 to the first person who snaps a photo of the dapper Morrissey stooping down to move a “concussed” squirrel off a road.
