The Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney is in the frontline of a campaign to save the life of a herd of deer during the English hunting season.
Activists at the League Against Cruel Sports have revealed stag hunt supporters have built a fence around an estate owned by McCartney in Somerset, England to prevent the endangered species from escaping onto land where they cannot be legally shot.
The Hey Jude hitmaker, a prominent animal rights campaigner, bought the land in 1991 to protect wild deer by providing an area where the staghounds could not enter.
The star has not yet commented on the erection of the fence.
The hunting season lasts until the end of the month.
