Mary McCartney Against Fur Usage

By Super Admin

Thursday, February 15, 2007

Sir Paul McCartney's eldest daughter Mary understands why people wear fur. The 37-year-old photographer is a life-long vegetarian and animal rights campaigner, like her father, late mother Linda, and fashion designer sister Stella.However, Mary can appreciate why people enjoy wearing animal pelts. She is quoted by Britain's Daily Express newspaper as saying: "I don't wear fur because I feel that it's completely unjustified and unnecessary, though I understand why people enjoy fur because it's beautiful, soft and the colours are amazing. I just can't justify it. I don't think something should be bred and killed for me to wear."

Mary recently photographed British singer Jamelia naked with a rabbit sitting on her butt for animal rights organisation PETA. Stella is also an ardent supporter of PETA and refuses to use fur or leather in her collections.Their mother Linda - who died in 1998 after losing her battle with breast cancer - had her own range of vegetarian meals and taught her children to respect animals.Mary added: "My mum and dad were vegetarians and we were all brought up to be aware of animals and the fact that they are lives in their own right. "So I've never thought of animals as something I would wear, something I can consume and eat."
