In the recent book ‘Cannibalism: A perfectly natural history’ by American researcher Bill Schutt we can read that cannibalism is not that unusual as one would expect. Humans consumed each other for centuries and not only on some far away exotic island but also here in Europe. And the reason of doing so was not only overpopulation or starvation which makes it even more odd. But also in the natural world animals from every class eat each other. Bill Schutt sums up numerous of examples like sand tiger sharks or the banana slug. But let’s not go too deep into the history or the rituals of cannibalism as we don’t have any cruel intentions.
