Animals can display some pretty strange behaviors when it comes to their babies.
It’s totally understandable that they start to get vicious when they perceive a threat around their little ones. On the other hand, it’s incredibly disturbing that some will actually eat their young for what seems like no reason at all.

For reasons unknown, this mom latched onto her owner’s hand and started pulling.

Whether she was trying to keep the kits warm with his body heat, needed a babysitter, or wanted to give them an afternoon snack isn’t clear, but she definitely wanted that hand in the box…
