News from the Natural World: Right angles on maps have really begun frustrating migrating Wildebeest in Africa.
All across the African continent Wildebeest have finally vented their anger and frustration at the human race. They are just totally fed up with the persistent habits of humanities geographers and conquerors. These humans just wouldn’t stop drawing straight lines and right angles onto their maps of Africa. Ever since white humans had begun drawing maps of the African continent they had displayed an incredible level of arrogance and stupidity. In their greed, racism and gross abuse of power, they had divided the continent into a series of laughable countries which bore absolutely no relation to the humans who lived there. They were simply a way for Europeans to rape and pillage Africa as well as its humans and animals. Just have a look at the border between Namibia and Angola!
Also, the habit had a truly disastrous and annoying effect on migrating Wildebeest as they attempted to travel across East Africa. Wildebeest, also called the Gnu, is an antelope in the genus Connochaetes. They belong to the family Bovidae, which includes antelopes, cattle, goats, sheep, and other even-toed horned ungulates. They roam East Africa in their millions and are a vital part of the web of life. Their favourite habit is migrating and every year they cross the savannah in their hundreds and thousands. But ever since the humans had drawn their lines, right angles and created borders it was a nightmare.
