Leaking wheel bearing grease

Under what conditions will the wheel bearing grease leak (assuming the wheel bearing dust cup is in place well and not damaged at all)?

Also, what is the best way to remove the wheel bearing dust cup without damaging it?

Thanks.

probably over full. when it heats up a bit it will ooze out.

tap on sides outwardly with a hammer. a short straight screwdriver to direct the force onto the raised ring helps too.
