You can substitute Satan, Hitler, Osama bin Laden, an ex-wife, whatever into the equation if you like...........
I will let others answer such loaded questions. My comment was on the general idea of x animal being worth x human life. In my opinion, it does not. Although I must say, If I stumble upon Satan drowning, I will let him sink for sure. I still would not truly risk my life to save fido.
