    Want to know forums opinion on this. It seems like many would sacrifice their life for an animal than for a human being.

    I'd sacrifice a lot for close family, but I can't imagine sacrificing even a finger for a pet tbh.

    Yeah. I'll eat meat because I like to. but I wouldn't eat a human unless it was that or starve. Hell I wouldn't murder a person in order to stop myself starving.
    Its terrible that dogs are regularly put down for bad behaviour. Considering that that behaviour is usually inflicted by mistreatment from humans. But I'm not as freaked out by that as I would be by a concentration camp being run in my country.

    That said, on an emotional level, if I'm having a really bad day my dog will be dumb and happy enough to cheer me up. Even if I'd be pissed off at having to talk to another person. Even though nearly every action movie starts with a hero's loved one getting killed off. The one that really pissed me off was John Wick's dog getting killed. And in Fallout, I don't care if Nick or Piper or whoever else gets shot. But if an NPC shoots at my dog, they're gonna get wrecked.

    Yeah I don't really care when I hear about people dying unless it's something extremely heinous and twisted. Even if it's just a mass shooting it's just like "meh, hope it doesn't happen to me". But hearing about even something as tame as a doggo not getting enough attention will throw me off. :/

    That said I realize it's my own values. Objectively speaking, humans have no more or less "worth" than other animals.

    I care more about humans I guess, but that goes both ways in terms of like and dislike. For example, I would never love an animal enough to sacrifice my life for one, but I would also never hate an animal enough to be mean or harmful towards them.

    I think for me it depends on the person’s persona as well. If the person is morally fucked and just has bad character in general then I won’t bat an eye. But if the Animal is aggressive and harmful I won’t bat an eye for it as well.

    I value human life more than animal life. Thus in a case where my pet would be in danger vs a human, I would prioritize to save the human first and my pet second. And I think this is true to everyone you ask (or should be true for everyone).

    Human family would come first, but other situations would depend on context and circumstances.

    I suppose to some extent I do care more about animals than people, it depends on the situation and the people.

    Yes, we people do things in cruel ways towards animals and most the times its for our benefit or enjoyment. The poor things don't even get to live their full lifespan sometimes or even feel what the wild feels like because of the captivity they've been put in.

    we like to say "They're in captivity so we can save them" yeah, they also happen to be there because we put them there as well.

    Humanity is cruel and selfish.

    Most zoo animals live longer than wild ones.

    Yeah, but they don't live as in they're not getting the full effect of what their kind do, they die yes it's the circle of life. But those animals aren't happy, sure they're living but they really aren't at the same time.

    This is mainly true in the case of large marine mammals - whales, dolphins, porpoises.

    Maybe. I don't think it's fair to make broad generalizations about every animal species and every conservation attempt.

    Current efforts to preserve the environment and ensure animal welfare leave a lot to be desired, but I think we're moving in the right direction.

    I really do think, at the end of the day, that what's being done for most species is helping rather than hurting. It's really only in specific circumstances that it doesn't, mainly what I mentioned earlier in my fixed post.

    eh, true possibly, it's known that those animals will never truly live as they would in the wild though. Most are depressed and some usually develop diseases that could be associated to said depression.

    But all in all I agree with what you said, good talk and I do hope we reach the end of the direction we're trying to take.

    Well it doesn't help that climate change is a thing. But yes, extinctions are happening at an accelerated rate, last I read.
