Fine young cannibal

Posted by Mark on May 30, 2011 at 06:55

I'm looking for the origins of the phrase "fine young cannibal." And, no, it's not the musical group. I personally witnessed the phrase used many years before the musical group formed in a nature documentary featuring eagles. Usually there is only enough food for one eagle chick to survive, and when two or more are born, the one that gets biggest the quickest will kill and eat the others. The documentary used the description "another fine young cannibal." It would be very helpful if anyone knows the name of this documentary, or where I could locate it.
