The lost man who ate his dog

(Continued)

That doesn't mean the reactions to his case were uniform. Some of the most interesting responses to the Lavoie story can be found in the comments section of the conservative site The Blaze. Here, some commenters compared Lavoie to Obama, repeating the story that Obama ate dog meat in Indonesia while growing up. Other commenters shrugged, saying "Let's just say he was resourceful." One added: "If [Lavoie] would have died before eating his dog, his dog would have surly [sic] ate him."
