Horrible question: Beloved pet and a total stranger are both in danger, If you do nothing they will die. You can only save one, who would you pick?

Details:
-It's just as easy to save your pet as it is to save the stranger. So you will have to base your choice solely on the individual.
-You know absolutely NOTHING about the stranger and you can't make assumptions based on appearance or otherwise. But he/she is a human being after all.
-Your care incredibly much about the pet, almost like you would love your own child.
-You could just choose to save neither, if the decision is too hard.

I wonder what you people will pick.

  • I've never had a pet but if I were to imagine myself emotionally attached to a pet, Im not sure but i think I might save the pet over the stranger whom I have no connection with.

    Something I care about is taken away, my life becomes worse. A stranger dies, my life remains the same as before.

    The only thing that would hold me back would be that people might label me as "the asshole who let a man die to save his cat". Or I might feel guilty, like how could I value a cat over my fellow man. Or perhaps I'd feel pride in being a hero. But if I were to save the stranger it wouldn't be because I care about them, it would be because I felt like "I was supposed to save him" not because I actually want to.

    I also think the person's appearance would influence my decision, like I'd be more likely to choose the stranger if it was an attractive girl. However if it was a fat man I might be more likely to save my beloved pet.

    • Agreed, this question is actually: "Would you do what is morally right even if it would mean losing something your really care about?" And it's beginning to look like people wouldn't, at least in this instance.

    • it seems like morality is just based on how people feel emotionally

    • Possibly, however it is decided in societies and social groups what is and what isn't moral and this is not just based on feelings. Because it seems to differ on different places in the world, it's unlikely that those people just feel differently than we do and base their morals on that. So that would suggest that our feelings about these choices are for a large part decided by what society has dictated is moral and immoral.

  • I would rather die then watch two lives go to waste like that. If it came to just choosing one I would have regret over the one that died for the rest of my life. I just can't do that and I would do everything in my power to save them both regardless of the situation.

  • In moments like that I don't think there would even be a hesitation. You'd try to help the stranger and then your beloved furry friend.

  • The stranger is more capable of saving him/herself than my pet, so I would go for my pet first. The only exception would be if the stranger was handicapped or a child.
