News from the Natural World: Animals are nostalgic for the good old days when humans were still hunter-gatherers. All animals that inhabit the earth have unanimously declared that they have had enough of modern humans. The constant destruction of the natural world, climate change, industrialisation of the meat industry and putting bananas in plastic packaging was just the beginning. In addition to this obliteration of nature, the human population has absolutely skyrocketed beyond belief. There were just billions of the buggers. The ever increasing homo sapiens had pushed all the other animals to the brink. The animals were all in agreement. If only they could go back to the good old days when humans were hunter-gatherers. Thousands of years ago humans lived in hunter-gatherer societies in which most or all food was obtained by foraging. Foraging is the collecting of wild plants and hunting of wild animals. Humans lived in this way for hundreds of thousands of years, hunting, moving, migrating and spreading across the globe. The animals said that the odds were far more even back in the day. The animals could run or attack, they at least had a chance in the wild. But then followed the invention of agriculture and the hunter-gatherers who did not change were conquered by farming or pastoralist groups in most parts of the world. The humans began to leave their nomadic hunter-gatherer life behind and settled down to pursue agriculture. Finally, they had decided to tend to their future gardens.
