This is very hilarious and disturbing unit. They have her, the dog eats him. I hope I never have to say these in English let alone Danish.

No wonder Hamlet it crazy! The bears already eat you now the dogs are eating you! Not only that, the dogs, bears, and spiders are drunk and the ducks are reading the newspapers!

In Danish, animals don't eat (spiser), they "feed" or some non-human way of eating. To be correct the translation is "hunden æder ham". I knew it would likely be marked wrong, but I wanted to see if Duo really knew...and they didn't.

    No, this sentence was probably spoken by a tourist! The dog is eating ham! The tourist just didn't know how to say skinke in Danish, so you can all rest easy. Just kidding of course but the image may let you sleep better.

    In all consideration, how? Assuming that this is an alive human child, for only a child would be small enough to be eaten (not including pets that could be classified as ‘him’), there would be difficulties with stretching muscles around the jaw, issues with the child moving, not to mention insufficient digestive juices. Alternatively, we could assume that the human or animal is no longer alive, but this would be an unpleasant question for Duolingo to ask, so it is unlikely. What time of dog is it? A small dog is out of the question, but canine size should be taken into consideration, given the context. A small dog would have the wrong jaw size. At this point I should stop, as this is becoming increasingly unpleasant. Have a good day.
