Suspension of disbelief is present in everything from the smuttiest of pornographic materials to works of Shakespearian quality.
Scenarios that are simply too unrealistic to accept, which can happen quite readily in racy illustrations and erotic fiction, tend to break that suspension. Once it's broken, then the reader ceases to enjoy himself and, for lack of a better metaphor, starts tossing tomatoes.
On the slight chance that you would imply that the existence of anthropomorphic animals in itself a rather difficult situation to accept, such a scenario is looked over as a sort of "quid pro quo" in exchange for the entertainment of the comic. On the contrary, the idea of a right-minded individual allowing another person to come so close to death for no apparent reason seems to highlight a rather crude attempt at the author to advance the plotline, thus breaking the reader's suspension of disbelief across the knee of the author's incompetence.
Although it may not stop some of us from entirely enjoying this particular work, such a flaw stands out like a poorly executed dialog in a pornographic movie. Of course the woman's breasts are rosy and lovely, and her vulva plump and velvety, but her voice sounds like a thousand tiny nails against the blackboard of your mind. The quintessential "fly in the ointment" if you will.
Now I must join my colleagues at the hunting lodge. Good day sir.
