The following are quotes:
- “In mammals, filial cannibalism has been reported in rodents (like voles, mice, and wood rats), and lagomorphs (rabbits and their relatives), as well as shrews, moles, and hedgehogs. These mammal moms sometimes eat their young to reduce litter size during periods when food is scarce. Cannibalism also occurs when litter size exceeds the number of available teats or when pups are deformed, weak, or dead.”
