The star, who recently went to 10 Downing Street to demand a ban on wild animals in circuses, is now turning his attention to domestic pets.
Brian is siding with the cat welfare charity Feline Friends, who fear the Government may soon ban electronic collars, which keep pets safe in back gardens.
“It’s a very humane system which saves pets from horrific injury and death on the roads and spares their owners the misery of losing much-loved cats and dogs,” said Brian. “Feline Friends worry that this life-saving system could be scrapped and that would be very misguided.”
In his campaign Brian is embarking on a 2,000-mile bus tour around England, asking for signatures on a petition to Parliament calling for the system to be retained.
He will be launching the campaign outside the city’s Crown and Mitre Hotel at 8am tomorrow.
