    Questionable truth, but maybe. Lions can't kill over 4,000 yards away, but tigers like human flesh.

      Tigers like indian flesh

      They can smell vegetarians and vegans and identify them as prey animals if they are also manlets. A diet that’s over 2/3 meat and being a man who stands taller than 5’10” is an effective tiger deterrent.

    Depends on the people im sure
    Like i always think people are so moronic when they argue against hunting and trapping coyotes with stupid arguments like
    >if you kill them theyll breed even more!!
    Like ok so? I dont know if its even true but either way wouldnt you rather live around a bunch of coyotes who are scared of getting shot than around a few who arent?

      Because we like coyotes more than feral cats and the stench of cattle. We just know you’re too stubborn to agree that ranchers are pest animals.

    Hominids have lived in africa for over 4 million years
    >their natural predators
    Hominids are their natural predators.

    Are you the kind of person that considers dingos an invasive species but turns a blind eye to homosexual sapiens aryan and his animal herding, stone stacking ways?

    Awwww this and the fact I'm a zoophile is the reason why no gazelle willingly comes to me when I see one.

    Good for them, It'll help them avoid poachers, hunters and maybe habitations as a whole, It is a bizarre feeling to hear that if true however.

    They don't have language and generally use a small pattern of calls. Human speech probably sounds creepy as frick to them.

    Pretty fricking based. This is a human planet, we are the equivalent of old gods compared to them. Pic related.

      The other day I was taking a walk in a forest and I stumbled upon a wild boar and it started chasing me. I had to climb a tree and call the police because I was unarmed.

          Being a boar without a license carries a minimum of 5 years in prison here. Jails are nightmareish.

      And to think, all it took was figuring out the rock + stick meta and that's it, it was all over for everybody else. Biology is no match for technology. Really makes you wonder about AI and singularity and all that, but I'm sure it will be a pretty neat ride to the end if that's the way she goes.

      You can't blame humanity for your own lack of preparedness. Stay strapped or get clapped, your ancestors figured this shit out millions of years ago.

    >animals fear apex predators more than regular predators
    what did he mean by this

    If true (questionable), not surprising. We are apex predators by any definition AND we've been killing animals from beyond their line of sight before they can realize (guns) for many generations now. It'd make sense that the prey animals figured out "those noisy monkeys are death" because, well, we noisy monkies ARE death a much higher percentage of the time than a lion.

      A lot of it is probably also because most animal's response to "weird living thing I'm not familiar with" is "get the frick out of there, dude". Humans quite literally look like nothing else that most of these animals have ever had to deal with as they were evolving. We just sort of showed up all over the planet.
      But then yes, there are also all the African animals that have been dealing with our bullshit ever since we started figuring out that throwing rocks and sticks is pretty cool, so they also want to stay the frick away, but have a more concrete reason to.
