Eating Babies January 25, 2008Posted by Marie in Gripes.
I’m an animal lover but I have very little interest in hamsters, I’d rather keep a pet mouse. Anyways, the neighbour at my parents place has a few hamsters they keep outside and I saw a little baby, so I quickly knocked on the door and was like… "Hey, your hamster gave birth, you wanna remove the baby so that the mom does NOT eat it? And the son (who’s 19?) was like… "Errr, she’s been eating her babies a lot, so we’ll just leave it." I was shocked, if you don’t want babies should you separate the males from the females? Isn’t it some sort of animal cruelty to keep letting this happen. I’m kinda pissed off and I’m trying to decided if I should talk to the parents. Sigh. Stupid people just shouldn’t have pets.
