I mean I wouldn't say I value them more than humans in general. But that person specifically, yes, absolutely I do.
@antgoo, if a person decides to attack domesticated animals without provocation that person would be labeled at least a bit cray cray.
@antgoo, if a person is stealing my dog, they clearly thing it’s worth the risk, therefore shooting is justified
I do LEGITIMATELY think there are times I would rather save a dog/cat than a human, and I don’t think that’s a bad thing.
@MrSirManJR, well, humans tend to be terrible people, but dogs are always happy to see you and cats... tolerate you as long as you feed them, so there's that.
@DistractedDingo, was... My gf a cat this whole time...
Quite frankly, I value my TV more than someone who has decided to violate my home and steal my stuff. It's up to you to decide if your life is worth my TV.
Don't victimize others.
Someone trying to steal a dog is probably worth less than the dog. Change my mind.
@Jauffre, no, I don’t think I will.
No, you're getting it backwards. It's not what I value over their life, it's what they value over their life. Besides, I have no way of knowing why they are there or what they are willing to do.
If someone is trying to steal my dog, I will 100% value my dog’s life over theirs. And I feel no shame in that.
Not exactly a unique addition to the conversation but…my pets are family so, yeah if you make the choice to hurt my family, I will value your life as less than theirs. That said, if we have a trolly problem where you didn’t do anything awful, I’d probably save the human life over my pet. Sad but true.
@Canis Arktos, I think that’s reasonable, and while it is sad, I agree with you. Context matters.
In this scenario that person is literally going out of their way to not only steal but also wrong you. So yeah. Putting a thief’s life above something innocent is weird. Besides you aim for the legs so they can’t run.
I would never shoot someone trying to steal my dog. I might miss them and hit the dog.
@I Are Lebo, then you need to shoot more and improve your aims
@I Are Lebo, shotgun w/ rock salt, perfect home defense starter round.
@Hot Coffee, I prefer knives. Guns are too quick. With knives you get to enjoy all the little… emotions.
@I Are Lebo, A man of culture I see lol
You're goddamn right!
I value the life of a dog over any and all worthless human lives there’s billions of us what’s a few less
@eleven, 100% agreed
Bro I would dead ass save an animal over a human 100% of the time. Animals are innocent or following basic instinct where as humans are just trash.
I definitely value a dog over a person: dogs r pure and beautiful creatures any harm they cause is due to their nature as an animal with no malice behind it where as a human can be evil and choose to harm for its own pleasure so in a way dogs r more deserving of life then the filth that is humanity
I’d shoot someone if they didn’t think that my dogs are goodbois.
The dog is family. You ain't shït.
I’ve been told there is case law that supports using lethal force to protect your pet.
IDK if it’s true. But if you fvck around, you gon find out.
