Mice eat young

Post by Alan Gree » Sun, 05 Dec 1999 04:00:00

My son has a couple of white mice and one of them has just given birth. We
have heard that the parents sometimes eat their young. I have looked around
for information on why this happens. Most of the information indicates that
captive mice eat their young when disturbed - i.e. when they feel
threatened. Can anyone help me on this with more information and/or pointers
to internet sites.
