Thumbs down Paul McCartney's shrine to wife Linda is 'desecrated' by dumped deer remains

Paul McCartney's shrine to wife Linda is 'desecrated' by dumped deer remains

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...n_page_id=1811

Sir Paul McCartney's woodland shrine to his dead wife, Linda McCartney, has been "desecrated" today after the macabre discovery of deer remains found dumped there.

The League Against Cruel Sports, which maintains the woodland shrine, says a sadistic poacher has savagely attacked a deer and left the mutilated remains in the five-acre woodland site dedicated by Sir Paul to his beloved first wife. The shrine lies on his Somerset estate near Bampton.

The grim discovery, which was made in the early hours of February 24, was reported to both Devon and Cornwall and Avon and Somerset police forces. It came as Sir Paul joined ex-wife Heather as the face of a PETA campaign against animal cruelty, and threw his weight behind protesters in Australia battling against a planned kangaroo cull.

Rachel Jay, spokesperson for LACS, said the deer remains were found in the vicinity of St John's wood, which the League manages on behalf of Mr McCartney, and said that there had been a series of incidents.

"Paul McCartney owns St Johns wood, a portion of which is also a shrine to Linda McCartney," she said.

"The 5000-acre wood was bought by the McCartneys in 1990 for the League to manage. In 1998 when Linda died a five-acre wood was planted in memory of her.

"The remains were found on Post Lane which is just on the edge of St John's Wood, in between Upton and Skilgate.

"The neighbours found it. It was the head, legs and intestines of the deer, which looks like it had its hair scraped off. Obviously it is quite a sadistic attack."

The discovery was made as Sir Paul inserted himself into the row brewing in Australia over a controversial kangaroo cull.

A British animal protection group is using Sir Paul's face in an international campaign against the planned cull of hundreds of kangaroos on an Australian military base.

As demonstrators today promised human shields to protect the animals, McCartney appeared on a website set up by the animal welfare group Viva! to condemn the cull of up to 500 animals using tranquilizer darts and lethal injection.

"There is an urgent need for action to protect kangaroos from a barbaric industry which slaughters them for meat and leather," McCartney said in an undated message.

"Please do all you can to help Viva! end this shameful massacre."

The eastern grey kangaroos, which feature on Australia's coat of arms, are living on a military communications base in the nation's capital Canberra.

Authorities say the animals, on death row since May last year, threaten other local species through overgrazing.

Wildlife Protection Association spokesman Pat O'Brien said the cull of animals synonymous with Australia could damage tourism and promised human shields to protect them, with barricades and demonstrations to be set up on Thursday.

Why do people have to be so cruel?! I wonder if the person who put those dead remains of a deer on Linda's shrine holds something against Paul! I sure hope not.

I am skeptical, where is the proof of this being done by 'a sadistic poacher'?

and yes, I agree, it is sick.

I didn't actually read the article because I thought it sounded so awful. Pretty foul.

I think that anyone that hunts deer is pretty sadistic! And deer are sooooooo cute! How could they?! Think of Bambi!

I think the person who did it thought he/she was being funny.

Given Linda's love for animals, this is a huge act of cruelty and hatred for Linda and Paul. I reckon the person who did this must be a Heather fan.

Isn't Heather for animal rights too? If they were a Heather fan they'd come up with some other way to show hatred for Linda and Paul since Heather is also an Animals Rights Activist.

My comment was said rather tongue in cheek, Naomi.
