Heather Mills urges everyone to drink rats' milk to save the planet

HEATHER MILLS ENGAGED in another public outburst yesterday as she urged the nation to drink the milk of rats, cats and dogs to save the Earth.

In a tirade at Speakers' Corner in London's Hyde Park, the environmental campaigner insisted that meat and dairy were ruining the planet, and suggested the milk of rats, cats and dogs would be more eco-friendly.

Ms Mills arrived at the spot to launch a pro-vegan campaign for animal charity, Viva!

Standing in front of a giant billboard, she launched into an attack against 'cows' milk latte drinkers'.

She fumed: 'There are fields and fields of grain just miles from starving children in Africa, being shipped to Europe to feed our livestock.

'There are 25 alternative milks available in health shops and supermarkets. Why do we not drink rats' milk, cats' milk or dogs' milk?'

Viva claims that dairy and meat products are a bigger cause of greenhouse gases than all transport put together.

In a separate interview with the Press Association, Mills added: 'It's mad that we are having cows' milk. Even cows don't drink it after one year but we continue forever.'

She said her inspiration was an African woman who told her: 'If people would stop drinking cows' milk lattes, then they would help us.'
