Not a perfect world

The activist adds that vegans do not want to see farmers out of work, but that they want to see the end of animal exploitation and abuse.

The farmer says: “[Our] whole community is built on the cow’s back, and here you are trying to destroy it.”

When Joey Carbstrong asks the farmer where the cow’s choice is in being sent to the slaughterhouse and eaten, he replies: “We don’t live in a perfect world, mate.”
