I have just one simple question:


All things being equal, are you more likely to risk your life to save a human being or an animal, and why?

I can't vote, because the poll has no option for "both." I'd be far more likely to risk my life for a human (and have done it several times), but under certain circumstances would not hesitate to risk my life for an animal.

Right, agree with this. Can't answer as I would do both as well.

Depends.

Is the animal a sweel lab, with big soulful eyes - or a snarly alligator?

Is the human Betty White - or Trump?

Lol! I would totally save a lab and Betty White but I'd leave trump to hang with the snarly alligator. =)

BWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Though honestly, Betty White is such an animal lover that she would probably tell you to save the animal.
