Sir Paul Mccartney - Animal Rights Bosses Pay Birthday Tribute To Sir Paul Mccartney
Vegetarian campaigners have paid a special tribute to Sir Paul McCartney ahead of his 70th birthday by recreating the famous cover of THE BEATLES' ABBEY ROAD album - with giant animals.
The rock legend is a leading supporter of animal rights and has promoted the cause through his Meat Free Monday campaign and his work to continue his late wife Linda's vegetarian food line.
He turns 70 years old on Monday (18Jun12) and to celebrate, officials at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) have mocked up Abbey Road's famous road-crossing cover photo using humans in furry chicken, cow, pig and fish outfits.
The four 'animals' are carrying signs spelling out, "Happy Birthday, Paul! Thank you for loving us, not eating us".
A spokeswoman for the organisation says, "Peta couldn't be happier to celebrate Paul's birthday. He has done so much to help animals during his legendary career, and we can't think of a person more deserving of celebration."
