LONDON, Dec. 7 (UPI) — British rock ‘n’ roll icon Paul McCartney has narrated a 13-minute video about slaughterhouses for the group, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
The 67-year-old former Beatle and longtime vegetarian narrated “Glass Walls” in an effort to raise awareness about how animals and workers are treated in slaughterhouses, The Daily Telegraph reported.
“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian,” the newspaper quoted McCartney as saying.
In the video, McCartney reportedly also explains how cows, pigs and chickens “endure almost unimaginable suffering.” While he talks, images of the animals being killed are shown, the Telegraph said.
“Eating meat is bad for our health. It’s bad for the environment and it directly supports appalling cruelty to animals. The decision is yours. Please make the compassionate choice,” McCartney said in the clip, which can be viewed at www.meat.org
