Ex-BEATLE Sir Paul McCartney's wife Heather Mills is furious with people who engage in blood sports to supposedly eliminate pests in the countryside.

The glamorous former model is disgusted by the arrogance of fox-hunters, and believes that the sport is needless.

She says, "Anyone who wishes to chase and terrorise a wild animal for sport has a cruel streak in their personality."

And Mills is further incensed as her rock legend husband lives in the countryside and has never considered foxes pests.

She explains, "Paul has lived on 4,000 square metres for over 20 years and never had to kill one animal. Even though he has lambs he doesn't have a problem with foxes or any wildlife.

"These arrogant hunters break the law and, worse, wasted all that time in parliament debating the issue that could have been better spent elsewhere."
