Macca backs Norway whaling protestJune 22nd, 2010 - 5:07 pm ICT by ANI
London, June 22 (ANI): Sir Paul McCartney has offered support to an anti-whaling campaign by urging the Norwegian government not to lift a ban on commercial hunting.
The former Beatle has backed the protest, calling on the Norwegian government to “protect” the sea mammals.
“It’s time to end the cruel slaughter of whales and leave these magnificent creatures alone,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
“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,” he added. (ANI)
