Marco Lavoie, stranded in remote Canada

 

Trekker Marco Lavoie was forced to eat his beloved pet dog to survive after a bear destroyed his campsite and provisions 800km northwest of Montreal.

Lavoie was undertaking a three-month climbing trip in the Canadian wilderness with his pet when disaster struck.

Remarkably the loyal German Shepherd had saved his life after chasing the bear away, but not before it destroyed all his provisions.

Desperate and hungry, Lavoie killed his dog and ate it just a few days later.

The trekker was found in November last year suffering severe hypothermia and dehydration and had lost about 40 kilograms.

Experts said the decision to kill his pet may have saved his life.
