Not sure about "why", but it is not an uncommon issue. Also, eating feces is more common. I suspect it has something to do with "sensory messages", sort of like marking trees & sniffing each other's behinds. I know they make supplements to help with the fecal consumption, maybe there is something for your issue too? Behavior training could get it under control. If he is well trained, and that behavior is not condoned, he may stop. Good luck!
