Paul McCartney’s Sheep :)

They die of old age!!
Paul McCartney insists on keeping aging sheep on his Scottish farm because he can’t bear to have them slaughtered. The Beatles legend, a staunch vegetarian, admits he is a little embarrassed to have the old creatures on his farm, but would never consider having them killed.
He says, “I live on a 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 [slaughterhouse]. They just die like we do. It’s life, it’s death, it’s what happens. We just give them a good life and I take the wool from them.”
I say that Paul’s sheep are no doubt quite happy I like the way he thinks! I knew he was a strict vegetarian for ages, and am very glad to know that he provides so well for his sheep. Way to go, Sir Paul
