Paul McCartney has become the latest celebrity to sound off on the proposed lifting of a ban on commercial whaling.

The legendary musician has joined fellow UK singer Leona Lewis in supporting an anti-whaling campaign by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA).

“It’s time to end the cruel slaughter of whales and leave these magnificent creatures alone,” he said in a statement. “In the 21st century how can we even contemplate killing whales – or any animal – in such barbaric ways? Governments should act on their responsibilities and protect these beautiful creatures. The best future for our relationship with whales is watching, not hunting.”

The lifting of the ban is currently being discussed behind closed doors at the annual International Whaling Commission’s meeting in Morocco. If passed, it would allow limited catches for those countries which continue to hunt the mammals despite the ban.
