Article: Megafaunal extinctions driven by too much moisture

In contrast to popular opinion, prehistoric hunters didn’t mindlessly hunt megafauna into extinction. Archeologists now found out that many bigger animals went extinct due to a rapid change in climate after the last Ice Age when the glaciers started melting and turned grasslands into swamps.

This comes as no surprise for us, since we know that primitive people until today have extensive knowledge of their environment, hence know its limits and culturally impose regulations about when to hunt which animals so that the continuation of their species is ensured (f.e. don’t shoot hibernating bears or catch fish who just had babies). They would never be stupid enough to drive animals on which they depend for their survival towards extinction.
