The closest I've ever come to this was having to collect rainwater with a plastic tarp and rip some bark off of a bunch of trees looking for little grubs to eat. I survived, but I think it really weirded out the other people in the shopping center.

I wonder at what point the classic cartoon scene happened where the camper was looking at the dog and all he saw was a large T-Bone steak. Meanwhile, the dog is looking back at him like, "John? You ok??"

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 hook

The 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?


It would have been hilarious if the bear had come back and eaten him after he ate his dog.

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.


Or at least fashioned the remains of his canoe into some kind of paragliding device.  He could have harnessed a pair of freshwater dolphins and glided back to civilization.  What a moron.

This is why you take your dog and a woman when you go camping.
Well, I'd certainly say she had marvelous judgment, Albert, if not particularly good taste.

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.


Paraphrased: "This article lacks important details about the situation and circumstances which led to the killing of the dog for survival.  I will now make wild accusations about the man from the article even though I just stated that there isn't enough evidence to conclude why things turned out the way they did."

This is why I don't take my dog camping with me. I take my pet cow. Nobody cares when I kill it and eat it, and there's a lot more meat.

A good dog like that should never be eaten in one sitting.

I'd probably eat my dog 10 mins into the trip.

Any excuse will do.

Besides makes sense to eat the dog whilst it is fat and plump rather than wait for dog to get skinny.

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?


They lick the tears from my face on days like this when mean people on fark make me sad.

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."


See dog lovers?  Even EXPERTS agree that you're foolish retards.

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.


This, very much this.
The dude was a flaming ass hat.
Even his family didn't report him missing for weeks.

1. I prefer death to killing and/or eating my Shepherd. He is far more respectable than I.

2. If my family waited weeks to declare me missing, I'd be getting a new family and sleeping very lightly.
