Why Paul McCartney Turned Vegetarian

Former Beatle Paul McCartney, a long time animal advocate and vegetarian, tells the story of the fishing trip that changed his life, when he realized that the fish he was catching had a life of their own and wanted to escape death. As he relates in his own words, "Many years ago, I was fishing, and as I was reeling in the poor fish, I realized, 'I am killing him -- all for the passing pleasure it brings me."... "And something inside me clicked. I realized as I watched him fight for breath, that his life was as important to him as mine is to me."
