Well it does seem the boundaries of what is and is not cannibalism does find a place in the process of birth in the animal kingdom.
All animals that give birth eat the placenta....so does that make all of these animals canabals? Take humans out of the equation for a moment....are
cats canabals since they eat the placenta, are dogs canabals since they eat it, what about chimps, apes, the list goes on and on??
Do we see these animals eat their own kind outside of eating the after birth? No, we dont. Obviously to me anyways, this shows that in the animal
kingdom, animals do this for 2 possible reasons. 1, it holds enough protein for the mother to be reassured of plenty of nutrition for her young. 2, in
the wild, its not like you want to leave some bloody blob laying around for other animals to track on.
If there is something that is a part of a birthing process which through nature, it gives a great amount of nutrition to the mother for her
young....isnt this just a miracle in nature, making a way for less young to die of mal nutrition.
With cats and dogs, we see the animal kingdom acting in instincts, when they probably dont really have to any more. Pets are usually offered plenty of
food...pet owners usually learning about how to offer the best food in the most needed times. Its probably very possible for cats and dogs to have a
healthy litter of young without eating the placenta. But they still are linked very much to instincts, even though we make a most unnatural home for
many of them , offering them luxuries they normally wouldnt have.
My point is....we have no idea what man did thousands of years ago living in what would of been the womb of nature, the animal kingdom. You can choose
to not see us as animals in the past....but when I imagine how we would of had to be brutal to survive...I could see something like this being
possible for us at one time.
My point....I dont think its cannibalism. Course this is just an opinion.
