    I just read a study that said about 40% of people would save their dog instead of a foreign tourist if an out of control bus was aiming for them. How isn’t the percentage to save the dog nearly 100% across the board for every stranger? No way I’d save a stranger.

    Whoa. Wait.

    You value the life of an animal over that of a human?

    I love my dog and would sacrifice her life to save a stranger's life in a heartbeat.

    Not saving the life of a stranger over saving the life of an animal (even a beloved pet ), how is this even a question?

    Yeah. I love my dog more than life. I would throw myself in front of a bus to save him. That said, I would save the stranger. My priorities: other person > my dog > me

    Wow, okay.... I respect your opinion and differ in respect to saving my dog over myself.
    I have people who rely on me and as much as we love our pet, she's not getting saved before me or a stranger.

    Nobody depends on me. The calculus might change if I had a family.

    Okay...... But you value the life of an animal over that of a human (you) ?

    I have agency Over my own life, it's my decision what I do with it. A purposeful sacrifice isn't a loss to me.

    That's quite the sacrifice. At least we agree that we both value the life of a stranger over an animal.

    cant really tell until its happening most people will freeze or panic

    If you could predetermine your reaction, which would it be: your pet or a stranger?

    Remember, you can only save one.

    honestly im imagining my dog giving me the sad look and crying and im also imagining a stranger face bloodied and begging for me to help him. with a clear head i can say to pull help him out but i also know that when my adrenaline is going full blast i could go and try to save both, or just save myself or just save my dog.

    Ha. Yeah... God willing, we won't ever need to make that choice.
