Paul McCartney REALLY cares for animals…like REALLY cares!!!
Along with his many vegetarian campaigns, including his Heart of the Country song and ad for Linda McCartney Foods, Paul also has a farm in Scotland.
A farm chock full of OLD animals!!!
The former Beatle reveals that he is absolutely terrified of slaughtering his animals, so he lets them pass in old age naturally.
While Paul's sheep are sheared for wool, they are never killed and many marvel at the sight of some of the older sheep on the farm.
I live on a sheep farm and we shear the sheep, but they die of old age.
But it can be embarrassing. People say, ‘Look at the state of your sheep!’ and I say, ‘Yes, they’re very old. There’s only one alternative – to send them off to the knacker’s yard’."
It’s life, it’s death, it’s what happens. We just give them a good life and I take the wool from them.
See…all you have to do is show a little compassion!
Here's to old sheep!!!
