    I would ALWAYS save a human over an animal. It’s not even a question.

    I’ve asked my FI this question before. He said he would choose our dog hands down! He is our baby! 

    I love my dog so much…more than I love my FI sometimes =) hehe. And I would jump in front of a moving car to save him if I had to BUT if given the choice to save a human life (even a stranger) I’d have to save the stranger otherwise I’d live with the guilt forever.

    @SoupyCat:  This reminds of that other thread of animal vs baby! 🙂 That one got super crazy.

    If it were my pet versus a child, I would save the child.  Maybe.  If it were my pet versus an adult, I’d save my pet and then go for the adult.

    Here is why: an adult has a better chance of surviving a bit longer in the water than a child.  So there is a chance you could save both.

    I am horrified that people wouldn’t save a person first- so disappointing.

    @Cory_loves_this_girl:  I agree. I would always have to choose to save a human being over any animal, even my precious, beloved pet. I would be devastated to lose my dog, but I could not not  try to save a fellow human if I had the power to do so.

    @SoupyCat:  I know that this was not the question that you asked. However, I would be curious to know how people would vote if the question were, “Who would you want someone else  to save — their own  pet, or your  child or spouse?”

    As horrible as it would be to lose a pet, there is no way I can justify its life over that of a HUMAN!  I would only hope that if I were the human drowning in this situation, that I would be saved.
