I would save the person first at least 90% of the time, if not more. The only time I would take an animal out before a person is if it was obvious that I could not help the person.

I love my pets as though they were people, so that's really difficult to say, but that's how it has to be. That person has loved ones, parents and siblings and friends, and even if I don't like them or know them, choosing to let that person die hurts many more than just them. Losing a pet hurts only me.

It depends on the situation. If there was time, I'd get the person out if they couldnt do it themselves then go back for the animals. If possible I'd do both. If it wasnt family, I would go for the animals and come back for the person. But again, it depends, this is really a weird question and you didnt give us any kind of story to it o.O

So just take the story posted by another member into consideration when I started this I meant in any situation.No, matter what I believe you can only save one of the following lives in a crices situation.

An animal

A person

A plant

It really depends on the situation,
Like say the house catche's fire one night and everyone is woken up by the fire alarm...I would set the animal's loose so they could get out on their own or find shelter somewhere, the person in question run's out of the house and I grab a loved plant on the way.

In any emergency, if I remember correctly...if at all possible set all pet's loose so that they have a chance to get out (like rat's/snake's just open the cage).

But true I agree with everyone here, I would save a person!

That's a tough one...

I can't decide D: I'm tied between animal and person.

Edit- though it depends... if I didn't know the person and it seemed like they could fend for their own, I'd save the animal.

Who would you save?

In all honestly, I would save my boyfriend. I love my pets, but for the ones that I have I can always start a new. It sucks, but when you have someone in your life that is also sharing your own and love them with all your being....they are your world.

I love you Jared <3
I'd have to agree with this post. It would be horrible to turn my back on the pets who've trusted me to protect them, but if my entire future was at risk (someone close to me) I wouldn't be able to leave them behind. What if you had plans to have a family in the future? Would you leave your boyfriend or girlfriend behind at that point? It may sound selfish, but humans have to reproduce in order to survive just like every other creature on this Earth and your own species matters most in those kinds of situations. However, if it was some random stranger in the building I'd go after my animals because they're considered to be a part of my family. I'd feel bad for leaving the stranger behind, but family matters most in those kinds of situations.

Yeah, I never thought of it that way thanks for giving us all another view at it.
