It’s been almost two weeks since then and I got a phone call saying the father and a baby were biting chunks off of the runt. We tried saving him but he ended up dying. With part of his face eaten and legs partially torn off.
Is there any reason for this behavior? And should she be concerned that the two cannibles will end up eating each other as well in the future?
I have a hard time believing that a father and baby would gang up on another baby, though -- especially if they were all being properly cared for.
They were all on paper bedding and had nothing wrong with their feet besides the fact that their toenails would get a bit long since she wouldn’t clip them alone and I had to come over and help. I couldn’t come every month so sometimes it would get close to two months before they were clipped but they never got super long.
They were chewing eat other feet. From what I have been told it was it’s face and shoulder area and the legs were mangled/torn but not eaten. Most of the damage was on the face.
I feel very bad. I was the one who recommended she gets guinea pigs for a pet and after this she wants nothing to do with them. I’m also now having to try and look for new homes for them because she doesn’t feel like she can handle keeping them after that. She’s kind of scared of them now
