A friend of mine worked for the National Park Service as a ranger at Yellowstone Park. One day he joined a crowd of people, cars, trucks and motor homes that had congregated to watch a bear. One woman and her little boy caught his attention. She was smearing something unidentifiable all over the boy's face.
He asked the woman what she was doing. She answered, "Putting honey on him, of course!"
Stunned, the ranger asked the obvious question: Why? She answered matter-of-factly, "I want to take a picture of the bear licking it off his face!"
Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view, my friend prevented them from approaching the bear, but to this very day, he has nightmares about it. This event just goes to show why some animals will eat their own young in the wild.
