O6 is right. It isn't so much that they acquire a taste, but they learn that we can be defeated and as such are an inconsequential obstacle in the way of a meal.

You have to put down critters that eat humans. Does it once and now you are just food to the carnivore.

Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend were both consumed by the grizzly bears he loved. I think it was bubbles and tootles that killed them in their tent whilst they communed and worshiped them in Alaska. He gave them stupid names and felt like he could live among them like some kind of hippy kindred spirit. The Alaska DNR did not care for him or his ideas. The DNR found the two juvenile bears protecting what was left of their bodies. The bears had identified human flesh as a food source. Both bears are now in bear heaven and Treadwell is......well, wherever dead hippies go.

I'd reckon they do as much as people develop a taste for them in SHTF. when you're hungry a dog or cat may be fine vittles.

If it's any consolation, I don't reserve this reaction to harm just for animals. ;)

Word is that humans are too salty for a predators first choice. Typically they become maneaters because they have trouble catching anything else.
Personally I thought the people I have eaten to be quite tasty. :-D

Is that why those who hurt humans are hunted down and killed?
Wild animals, by nature, should be afraid of humans or at the very least weary. If an animal kills and eats a human they no longer fear humans and must be put down.

And for the record Squatch's don't eat people. But I am not beyond licking a few!

I think I could hang out with Ralph, however I would pop him upside the head every so often just to keep him in check.

that's not what I heard skookum means cannibalistic devil. And one not forget about the wendigo or skin walker.

Just because some body parts were found in Bear 141 don't mean Treadwell was killed by it. Huguenard was supposedly left alone after Bear 141 dragged Treadwell off to the woods. Fishy all around.

I've been told I'm a cunning linguist but I'm not sure why. Often there's not enough of a break for witty banter.

All jokes aside I think of that sports team that was on the plane that crashed in the mountains. And they resorted to eating their dead mates to survive. Pretty sure they aren't walking around with a knife and fork in their pockets drooling as some prime candidates walk by.

The Tigers in India sure like those little brown folk carrying water around on their heads though. 100s go missing every year.

Sharks feasted on human when the Indianapolis sank but there was no rise in shark attacks in that area afterwards. It was an opportunistic thing.

In the animal kingdom we are just another animal.

Some people scrape their peas into the waste bin and others gobble them up. To think a predator doesn't have a preference is to think we don't. We do. And so do they. But for hunters anything is better than nothing and unfortunately I think that's where human prey falls. It's just an opportunity for a meal.

I'll bet I taste like bacon and donuts.

That broccoli is an elusive vegetable!

I hear the crushed dreams and tears of liberal-millennials who can't get their way are especially delectable - like escargot and truffles.

most predators are not omnivores they are carnivores so broccoli would not be on the menu but the animal that eats it would.
most animals are very specific on the target prey they have evolved for that particular prey to catch it. this is why some animal when the habitat is destroyed go extinct think of Polar bears they are designed for cold environments and hunt animals the live there such as seals when seals decline so do the bear population - some may argue this is not true because most animals will eat other animals not usually on the menu case in point humans so this leads to believe that it is true most are opportunistic and will eat for survival anything they can catch humans are the easiest thing to catch we have lost and replaced our instincts with technology and take everything for granted. Wild animals don't.
