Camera trap evidence in the Canadian Yukon shows snowshoe hares eat meat and are cannibals. A Canadian scientist discovered the phenomenon by accident while monitoring forest carcasses. The two-and-a-half-year long study found that hares ate from 20 of 161 carcasses—including birds, lynx, and even other hares. Hares likely eat meat to supplement their diets during subzero winter temperatures. The research is broadening scientists’ understanding of the fluidity of the herbivore diet.

  1. Hares are not commonly thought of as meat-eaters, but it does happen especially when extreme cold limits vegetation. What are your thoughts on this diet discovery?

  2. It's just survival under extremely harsh conditions. No surprise there. Its own kind? Same rationales. No problem.

  3. Hay there. I realy think the habitat is beautiful.

  4. I knew vegetarian animals ate meat, but I didn't think it was this often

  5. People actually think vegans care about animals eating meat? That's just the food chain, vegans biggest issues are factory farming the most inhumane thing in our society today.
