Queen guitarist Brian May has been honored in the House of Lords for his animal welfare work.

The legendary musician was given a special award by the International Fund For Animal Welfare (IFAW) at a ceremony this week.

May launched the Save Me Campaign earlier this year to prevent the return of legalized blood sports to the British countryside. He is well known for his animal welfare campaigns.

“Fighting for the welfare of our wild animals is not a task that any of us want to have to do,” he said. "We do it because these magnificent animals live, breathe, see, hear, and feel pleasure and pain like we do, but they do not speak our language, so in the world of humans, they have no voice.

“They have no way to speak out against the abuse being perpetrated against them.”
