Creatures with the CURIOUSBEAST_EATER token will happily pillage your food stockpile if given the chance. This will generally prove only a minor annoyance; unlike drink stealers, creatures stealing food will grab a single stack (or container) and carry it towards the edge of the map.
This property can also be used to capture certain creatures (such as grizzly bears) by surrounding a small food stockpile with cage traps. You can also create a large fat stockpile on the surface in hopes that some of it will be carried off in place of much more valuable items by flying thieves (such as kea).
