    McCartney Campaigns To Stop Australia From Thinning Kangaroo Population

    Paul McCartney has spoken out in disgust at Australia's plans to thin the population of a large number of kangaroos. The former Beatle has added his support to a campaign by Vegetarians International Voice for Animals (VIVA!), who are desperate to halt the proposed killing of 500 of the marsupials near the country's capital, Canberra.
    The animals have been targeted to be exterminated after the Australian government issued reports stating their large numbers impacted heavily on other species in the area.
    The 65-year-old rocker, who has been an avid campaigner for animal rights, says, "There is an urgent need for action to protect kangaroos from a barbaric industry which slaughters them for meat and leather."
    VIVA! have long fought a battle against the killing of kangaroos for meat exportation.
    McCartney's latest comments come just after the release of a new People For the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) poster campaign in which he describes the moment he decided to become a vegetarian.

    It's interesting how his account differs from Linda's. Linda used to say the moment they became vegetarians happened at home. They were having lamb for lunch and enjoying the sight of their lambs playing in the pasture. The irony then occurred ... how can we love our lambs so much and yet be eating them for lunch? Linda then said that they never ate meat again after that revelation.
