“Even the way that people are – I always say to people, ‘if you ran over a chicken on the road, and you jumped out of your car, what would your first reaction be? Would it be ah, that’s dinner? It wouldn’t – it would be – look at that poor chicken’.

“Any animal that eats other animals – when they see a dead animal it’s food. They don’t think about compassion or nothing like that.

“We think of compassion, so obviously we’re not meant to be like that.”?
