After the Green post yesterday.. Lets go to a very serious, odd, bizarre and weird stuff. Let's talk about Cannibalism.
Any human with the right mind knows that this is ultimate taboo. Just the thought of killing someone to consume is totally unbelievable. This compilation of list shows the many reasons why humans partake in this kind of practice. Some people practice this for cultural purposes, for survival or even the worst, for pleasure.
15. Fritz haarmann
Friedrich Heinrich Karl "Fritz" Haarmann was known to be an active trader in contraband meat. He is also known as the Butcher of Hanover and the Vampire of Hanover was a German Serial killer who is believed to have been responsible for the murder of 27 boys and young men between 1918 and 1924. He was convicted, found guilty of 24 murders and executed. Rumor also had it that Haarmann would peddle meat from the bodies of his victims as canned black market pork. Although no physical evidence was ever produced to confirm this.
14. RUF (Revolutionary United Front)
RUF was a revolutionary group based in Sierra Leone in Western Africa. By the late 1990’s they had been mired in a long bloody campaign to topple the central government. These insurgents terrorized rural Sierra Leone in an effort to control the nations diamond mines. The groups committed horrific atrocities which included amputations of limbs and cannibalism of enemies, including peacekeepers and United Nations personnel. Their motives for eating their enemies were to receive “strength” from eating human flesh and as a tool for intimidation. It is still unknown the exact number of victims .
13. Carib West Indian Tribes
The first known modern accounts of cannibalism were reported following Columbus’ expedition to the West Indies. At this point cannibalism was considered atrocious and sacrilegious in the developed world. Imagine, if you will, the indescribable horror that the first Europeans felt when they witnessed Carib natives during a post war ritual chewing and/or eating human flesh. This misunderstanding of Caribbean culture lead to the people of the America’s being considered “savages”. These sentiments lead to policies which encouraged countless incidents of slavery, mass murder, exploitation and destruction of the native culture of the America’s that continued for centuries.
12. Boyd massacre
The Boyd, a prison ship, headed to New Zealand from Australia with a shipload of convicts and passengers in 1809. Australia and New Zealand were settled by criminals and undesirables back in the day. A son of Maori (the native people of New Zealand with bad ass facial tattoos) chief asked for passage on the boat in exchange for labor. Whether he refused to work or was insulted and then refused is not certain, but the captain of the vessel whipped him for insubordination. Not a good idea.
When they got to New Zealand, the son showed everyone his marks and the Maori plotted revenge. 3 days later, they attacked the ship, first luring away the captain and the officers and then killing most of passengers with clubs and axes. They then killed the returning crew. They ate many of their victims, and the event is well known in New Zealand history.
11. The Andes Flight Disaster
On Friday the 13th in October of 1972, the plane carrying 45 Uruguayan Rugby team members, Stella Maris College Rugby Team, and associates en route from Montevideo to Santiago, Chile. Due to poor weather and pilot error the plane crashed atop of a Andes mountain on the border of Chile and Argentina. Search parties from three countries searched for 11 days in vain to find the downed flight of 45 people but were unsuccessful and all passengers were presumed dead. What followed next is one of the greatest examples of human survival ever recorded. Despite no food or heat 16 members of the team stayed on top of the mountain for over two months through the brutal winter while being forced to eat the remains of their fallen teammates before finally being rescued.
10. Donner Family (Donner Party Disaster)
Like the Andes crash survivors, the Donner Party ate each other to survive. The party consisted of 33 people at first, the Donner family acting at the leaders, and soon had other families joined bringing the number up to 87 people with 23 wagons.. At first, the trip went as planned. However, in late August they decided to take a shortcut rather than taking the usual route. This “shortcut” actually threw the party 3 weeks off schedule. Which is a bad idea. A snowstorm in October blocked their passage when they finally reached the Sierra Nevada mountain range. They were stuck in what is now infamously known as Donner Pass. Running low on supplies, they killed their oxen for food, but it didn’t last or long. A small group set out for an outpost 100 miles away, with some of the party resorting to cannibalism, and the group made it and word got out and relief efforts were galvanized.
The first rescue group arrived in February of 1847, 14 of the party were dead, and the rescuers brought out 21 of the starving homesteaders, with a second relief group to arrive a week later. By this point it is pretty certain the group had resorted to cannibalism. This second group took 17 with them, leaving 14 behind for the third rescue attempt. The third group found only 9 alive, and the fourth only one. Like the Andes survivors over a century later, the survivors ate the dead to survive. 42 died and 47 survived of the original party.
9. Mauerova Family
