Slim, in Of Mice and Men, ends up having to drown four of his puppies so that the remaining 5 might have a better chance at surviving. Conditions were harsh and food was difficult so he knew that none of the puppies might make it if he didn't intervene.
Slim kept the biggest and strongest ones then drowned the rest. He only wanted to keep the ones he saw to be most helpful.
