Pet peeves

Brian Wilson of the Beach Boys—famed for his driving role behind the creation of the band’s iconic Pet Sounds album—shared a Facebook petition on Monday calling for a boycott of the currently touring version of the band unless it cancelled Wednesday’s headlining gig at the annual Safari Club International Convention in Reno.

The convention, which continues through Feb. 8, is a showcase for big game hunting around the world. This year, Donald Trump, Jr., is among the speakers. The petition was orginally started by Eduardo Goncalves of the Campaign to Ban Trophy Hunting.

In the post, Wilson said he and Al Jardine, Beach Boys co-founder, oppose the decision by band co-founder and singer Mike Love to play the convention.

“This organization supports trophy hunting, which both Al and I are emphatically opposed to,” Wilson wrote, also sharing a link to the petition.“There’s nothing we can do personally to stop the show, so please join us in signing the petition.”
