 "My female hamster killed her pups and ate them. I can only see body parts now. It's so terrible. Should we get rid of her?"

Many people write to me with the above statement or something similar. It is common to feel disgust at infanticide (killing the young) and cannibalism.

However, we must consider that animals are different from humans and their values are not the same as ours (and shouldn't be expected to be).
