No Animal on Paul McCartney's Sheep Farm Goes to Slaughter

One of the biggest problems with the wool industry is that once the sheep get old, they are sent to slaughter. (Also, cruel shearing methods to maximize speed and the amount of wool.) But, on Paul McCartney’s Scottish sheep farm, the animals don’t have to worry. The woolly creatures get to live out their lives on the farm whether they produce good quality wool or not.

The vegetarian singer told Britain’s Radio 4, “I live on a sheep 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).”

Instead, McCartney lets them live out their lives. He said, “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.”

We wonder if his daughter Stella McCartney uses the wool from his farm in her clothing. While the designer’s fashion line is all vegetarian, it’s not quite vegan. She uses wool and silk in her designs. It’s nice that the sheep on McCartney’s farm don’t have the same troubles as sheep on traditional sheep farms. Including getting sent to slaughter.

We love the Beatle’s big heart and can safely say, he should not be embarrassed by the elderly sheep living on his estate.
