karmaceutical: you_idiot: karmaceutical: I'll bet he brings a fishing rod next time...yeah, I was thinking this... even if his fishing equipment was damaged in the attack, it's a fricken line and a hookThe rage in the comments is insane. So many assumptions. Idiots.You'd think the guy was a card carrying PeTA member or something.It is just a dog folks, get a grip. It isn't even your dog. People devour the flesh of a gabillion other animals every day when survival isn't even on the line. How about a littler perspective?
durbnpoisn: There is a big chunk of this story missing.He was out there for 3 months, and during that time, he had to eat his dog. What the hell was he eating the rest of the time? What happened to ALL of his equipment that it was ruined? He had a canoe. So, presumably, he was near water. Water contains fish. In Canada, LOTS of fish. How far downriver was the nearest town? Why could he not simply repair his canoe and go for a float? Wasn't that his idea anyway? What was his original plan? Canoe for a while, and walk home?So many things here are woefully wrong and stupid. The fact that he ate his dog is only one of the things wrong.It almost sounds like his original plan was to eat the dog and complain about it later. People would never accept him doing that at home.
NutWrench: Your dog *was* steak!
hammettman: HotIgneous Intruder: Story is sad because it makes no farking sense.Did he run out of food before the bear attack?Did the bear eat his food, then attack him?Was he lost before the bear attack?Was he out of food before the bear attack?What happened to his food?Did he go into the woods intending to commit suicide?Sounds like a stupid coward went into the woods and his dog was the victim.Yes, THIS. This farkhead deserves some torment.
George Babbitt: GanjSmokr: metatronarchetype: GanjSmokr: My animals are my children.No, your animals are not your children. They are your pets. The fact that you think that your animal pets are your children indicates you probably shouldn't be allowed pets or children, because you are mentally ill.I'm terribly hurt by your words, metatronarchetype. The fact that you don't approve of my feelings for my dogs is, for lack of a better term, crushing.You see, I can only exist by receiving affirmations about how I live from random people on fark. Usually this goes well and I have a happy day. Your harsh words have impacted me both mentally and physically and now I do not know what to do. Please tell me you approve of me! Please tell me you like me!! If you don't, I honestly don't know what I'll do.Thought that was why you bought your friends Rover and Trixie?

George Babbitt: FTA link to the Toronto Sun article on the same story:Survival expert Andre Francois Bourbeau said Lavoie did what he could to live."He survived because he made ‹good decisions. Eating his dog was one of them," said Bourbeau, author of a survival guide.Bourbeau has researched hundreds of similar stories, some of which include cannibalism."You have to be desperate, but there's no shame in (eating the dog)," said Bourbeau. "He had to use reason."
GanjSmokr: My animals are my children.
metatronarchetype: Yeah, the guy who says victim blaming is wrong is a troll. Outstanding!
skozlaw: metatronarchetype: Do you think girls who get raped when they drink too much at parties are to blamed for getting raped because they made stupid choices to get drunk?[upload.wikimedia.org image 300x212]

GanjSmokr: Skr: Hit with a rock eh? Sad indeed. Wouldn't do that myself. I'd look for other food sources or starve.I may be stupid for it and would probably end up dead, but I'm with you.I'd probably eat one of my dogs about the same time as most parents would eat one of their children. Meaning never.
metatronarchetype: People matter more than dogs.
