What if the mother mouse won't nurse the babies and tries to kill them. What do I have to do to help them live?

Mice if threatened or babies threatened will eat their young to replenish their food supply to move on to birth again in a safer environment. There isn't much you can do. Other mice will not adopt the mice of females they do not know, they will eat them as well.
