The 17 Craziest Cannibal Attacks in History
List Criteria: Violent cannibals from a culture where it isn’t normal or accepted. Only attacks with intent to eat.
Cannibalism is one of the strangest and most disgusting crimes a person can possibly commit. This is a list about the craziest real-life cannibal attacks that have ever happened, either in a single incident or over a series of years (and sometimes, decades). All the famous cannibals on this list killed people with intent to eat or at least cook their victims. I’ve excluded people like the tribes of the West Indies and Maori tribes and other cultures where [sic] cannibalism was just a part of life.
The real cannibals on this list committed these crimes while living within the rules of Western society and all of the crimes on this list were horribly violent. These are the worst, most depraved, and most well-known famous cannibals and cannibalistic serial killers in human history.

Zhenghua is suspected to have been living on the streets for several weeks after her mother kicked her out of the house despite being pregnant.
