Hmm that is sort of offensive. Of course he/she has a heart. I think most people would actually save a human over an animal.

Humans ARE animals by the way. We just happen to walk on two feet. Animals are sentient too.

IDK, my animals are my family, the stranger isnt :P He might not save me in such an incident, he might go for his wife or something. Who knows. In the zombie situation, I'd go for the dog rather than risk being with a possible weirdo. :P

^ What she said :D The dog wouldn't betray me! He'd bark if one got near and bite 'em real good. XD I'll get the dog to fetch me a stick or something for self-defence.

I never get the whole saving someone just because they're a human. Most people out there aren't deserving of being rescued. Heck, going by the blatant idiocy and cruelty so proudly broadcast on Youtube, I'd probably stop to push some of them further into harm's way.
Who decides who deserves to be rescued and who doesn't?

Should anyone have the power to do that?

We should remember that this is a thread for posting your opinions on the topic, and not judging others' opinions. Not saying anyone has done it, but it looks like it might happen. ;D

He's not your family, but he's someone's family.

I mean, I don't mean to start an argument, but if someone else saved a dog and let my father/brother/mother/best friend die, I'd know for sure what I'd think of that person and it's nothing good. :P
