    Pets before starvation

    Advertisements
    This might gross some of you out, but I'm curious.

    If you and your family (including pets: cats, dogs, horses, etc.) were stranded and had no food left, would you consume your animals?

    I love my doggers, and I love my horse. But if it came down to me and my family starving, I'd BBQ those suckers up quick. Eddie is a little plump, he'd make a good dog burger.

    it would depend. I would think if we were that starving our animals wouldn't be much left to eat. or I would try and find other means if possible. If we were like the donner party just stuck then probably.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Without a doubt. If me and my family was starving I would eat a dog,cat, whatever. Even a horse. My mom has a big fat pony that would feed all of us for a long while.

    My skinny lil pup wouldn't provide an appetizer. But I think in the case of an emergency, you do what you have to do.





    Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? / Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts /
    So it's fairly simple to cut right through the mess / And stop the muscle that makes us confess / And we are so fragile /
    And our cracking bones make noise / And we are just breakable, breakable, breakable girls and boys.

    Like Berk said, if it were just me, I don't think I could do it. If it was my child starving, I'd be making doggy-ka-bobs in a heartbeat.

    If it was just me by myself and my chances of survival (ultimately) were slim to none, I probably wouldn't even bother with it.

    If I knew I would have more of a chance to survive/escape from whatever situation I was in if I ate him, yes I would.

    If my kids were with me, I would absolutely do whatever necessary to keep them alive as long as possible, including bbqing Yogi.

    As I said in the horse thread.. never get emotionally attached to something you might have to eat one day.

    In this house we'd take awhile to starve... there'd be Escargot, Fish sticks, Turtle Tart, Catsoup, Hot Dogs and Rabbit Ribs.
