I am a York University student: Ontario, Canada, taking a course in the
study of Nature and Human Nature. I am posting this question in hope to
facilitate my research question:

Chimpanzee cannibalism. Why?

My working theory:
Chimpanzees are not real cannibals. Comsumption of other chimpanzee is to
facilitate population control and not to satisfy hungry.

This is my first time using this form of information gathering anot do not
know what to expect. I hope I can gain some meaningful information in my
first attempt to communicate through a usenet.
