Today's The Scotsman reports that Sir Paul was recently interviewed by The Newspaper, a publication written for school children. Talking about his new children's book, High in the Clouds, he told the reporter that it was Walt Disney's animated films that inspired him to become a vegetarian and to campaign for animal rights:
"If you think of Bambi, its mum gets killed by a hunter, and I think that made me grow-up thinking hunting isn't cool. It always gave me that idea. You look through a lot of these great stories, Dumbo, his mum is quite badly treated, A lot of these classic stories, through their efforts, kids, as I once was, have grown up feeling it's a bad idea to be cruel to animals."
