Animals apparently don't like Morrissey as much as he likes them. ...Well, one dog, at least.

Apparently Mozza was recently attacked in England by a dog that had not heard all the trumpeting the former Smiths singer does about animal rights.

Morrissey fan site True To You (which will probably be Moz' public enemy #2 after Morrissey Solo when he hears it's reported on this little incident) reports that the Mozfather "sustained hand and arm injuries recently after being attacked..." For some reason he was sent to a hospital in Malmo, Sweden, which told him he'd actually fractured the index finger on his right hand.

None of Morrissey's upcoming shows have been affected by the injury, presumably because he has three other fingers and a thumb on the hand in question, and another hand he can use to hold a microphone. Plus, if anyone pisses him off, he doesn't need to point at them using his index finger, and can always just put the middle one up in protest, instead.

The only thing that would have been more ironic would have been a seal biting him. A Canadian one. 'Cause... you know.
