"If Google says it, it must be true" is a mantra in a lot of (older) people's heads.
Man-eaters have been a recurrent problem for India....There, some healthy tigers have been known to hunt humans
During war, tigers may acquire a taste for human flesh from the consumption of corpses which have lain unburied, and go on to attack soldiers; this happened during the Vietnam and Second World Wars
So some learn to find it tasty, and continue on preying on humans by choice. As Homer put it: "Faster Son, He's Got a Taste For Meat Now! "
Logic doesn't apply to the real world. -- Marvin Minsky
