THE SHEEP ARE SAFE WITH PAUL
If we were sheep, we'd want to live on Paul McCartney's farm. The former Beatle and passionate animal activist told Radio 4's Food Program that his sheep die of old age because he cannot bear to send them to the slaughter. "I live on a sheep farm, 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."
