I just could not do this!

A man was lost in the mountains for 14 days with his dog. He was starving and thirsty. He only had a few things in his bag. A little bit of water, a couple snacks and a knife. He felt like if he was out there one more day without food he would die. So he called his dog over and came around the back of him and killed him so he could eat him!! I would rather die than kill my dog to eat her. Do you think if you were starving you could do that? Tell me your thoughts...

as much as i would love to say that this is vile, and disgusting, and i would never do this etc etc.. i think when you are in the situation, it's completely different. human beings have in-built survival techniques, and a part of their brain directly related to self-preservation. have you ever seen that film the happening? with the poisonous gas, or fog, that reverses the reaction in the brain to self preservation, causing people to kill themselves? it's like that, only obviously the other way round. we are all prgrammed to "survive" by any means necessary.

Yeah maybe if I was in the situation I might feel different about it. Looking at my dog right now, I keep thinking not a chance but your right if it happened to me I might not have a choice. I just hope im never in the situation...

I guess none of us really knows what we will do until we are faced with that situation. I am sure that this man had a most difficult decision to make. I am sure glad we were not in his shoes.

I would have never killed my dog to eat him. He was my friend...my buddy. I think I could have been inventive enough to find other things to eat!

Yeah it would be a very difficult thing to do. My dog is practically one of my kids. I hope I'm never in that situation!

I love animals. But, it is better to kill and eat a dog if you are starving, than to kill and eat a human being.

I love animals too. And I think your right. It is better to eat an animal than a person and maybe if I was in the situation I might do whatever I had to do to eat and stay alive...

I dont think that I can do that. Even if I am missing , there will not a dog with me because I dont like dogs. So this question is hypothetical to me.Again let us think for good than thinking about losing in the mountains.I will appreciate you for that much love for your pet.

I think it would depend on each person. Maybe if we were in that predicament it would be different...

No never..There are two reasons: First one: The one who lives with you and the part of you life become more precious than your own life..I don't have any pet not even dog. If i will have and i'll face this type of situation then i will try to find other way to survive rather than kill my pet and eat. second one: I am vegitarian so there's no question rise to eat an animal..LOL

I couldnt do it either, at least I dont think I could. My dog is like another one of my kids to me. It would be really hard...

He might have solve his hunger but what about his thirst? I thought one would die faster without water than food. As for his antics, I believe it is desperation that drove him to making that decision. As for myself, I don't think I will do it.

He found a nearby stream and was drinking from that. It was a tv show. Maybe in that situation I might but I dont think so.

When you think about survival, that is something you must do. Can't do something like that now because you are in a secured state. you could die if you don't

Yes maybe if I was in the situation I might be able to.

hello, I think in that kind of situation , I can say that I can do that because of hunger that i felt. I know my dog will understand why I should do that. I just made a choice. If I dont do that both of us will die with nothing. Though I know how much I love my dog.

Well maybe if I was in that situation I would feel different but right now I just dont think I could do it. I love my dog so much.

Hi.. I have seen days when I had to go without food for 10 long days... I lived on water only.. I can't tell you how I got through this.. I rationed my energy for different tasks... I was never so frustrated.. I had nothing to kill... But let me tell you, if I had something to kill, I'd have done that...
• Jacksonville, Florida

Yeah. Maybe if I was in the situation I could but thinking about it, I say no. I have only gone without food a few days so maybe if it was a longer period maybe I would do it...

In urgent situation, it does not violate the rules. Even the expense another human being. For illustration...If you are in a boat along with some people. And the boat would sink. Then you should get a rid someone else, to save themselves. If in such circumstances, you do not violate the rules.

I know he didnt do anything really wrong. I just dont think I could bring myself to do it. I wouldnt be able to look at my dog and kill her. Maybe if I was in the situation I might feel differently but I dont know...
