"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."
The interview was filmed at Vegan CampOut 2018.
