Singer and animal lover Paul McCartney has declared he won't perform in China after seeing "horrific" undercover film of dogs and cats being brutalize
Veteran singer and animal lover Paul McCartney is so furious after seeing "horrific" undercover film of dogs and cats being brutalized and then killed for their fur in China. Thus, he has angrily denounced the country and vowed never to perform there.
The film, shot for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) campaign group, displayed animals being thrown from a bus, and into boiling water. Also it showed the screaming animals, many with their paws now smashed from the fall, are then lifted up with long metal tongs and thrown over a 2m fence.
McCartney, who along with his wife Heather, a committed animal-rights supporter, said he would boycott the 2008 Beijing Olympics after viewing the footage. Furthermore, he also urged people to boycott Chinese goods, which drew a sharp response from the Chinese embassy in London.
Maybe wisdom from all groups of people is a need as an attempt to eliminate the improper deed. So let us walk shoulder to shoulder to stop the animal killing action.
