Best Answer

Yes, they can. Mother mice will sometimes eat their young if they think their young don't have much chance a survival (if the young are sick), if they a disturbed and think they are at risk or just because it's the mother's first litter and she gets carried away. Also, if a mouse dies, another mouse may eat it for the sake of cleanliness. Mice don't tend to kill other mice to eat them.
