Cannibalism is the act of eating one’s own species, most often being associated with the idea of humans eating other humans. The walkers have been regarded to as “cannibalistic freaks” by several survivors. In Season 3 Episode 15 “This Sorrowful Life,” The Governor bites off Merle’s fingers while fighting him (though he spits them out). In Season 4 Episode 16 “A,” Rick Grimes, Michonne, Daryl Dixon, and Carl Grimes arrive at Terminus, only to realize that the inhabitants of the so-called sanctuary are consuming human flesh. They ultimately escape the camp after Carol Peletier rescues them in Season 5 Episode 1 “No Sanctuary.” In Season 5 Episode 2 “Strangers,” the Termites catch up with the survivors and capture Bob Stookey after he goes outside to cry during the party; they consume his leg after amputating it from his living body and barbequing it on an open fire. In the following episode, Bob confesses he has been bit, making them question whether or not they are eating tainted meat.
