There's a thread here mentioning films we watched in school as a kid. This was one of them.

I feel so, so .... used.

"During the filming of the 1958 Disney nature documentary White Wilderness, the film crew induced lemmings into jumping off a cliff and into the sea in order to document their supposedly suicidal behavior. "


"Disney's White Wilderness was filmed in Alberta, Canada, which is not a native habitat for lemmings and has no outlet to the sea. Lemmings were imported for use in the film, purchased from Inuit children by the filmmakers. The Arctic rodents were placed on a snow-covered turntable and filmed from various angles to produce a "migration" sequence; afterwards, the helpless creatures were transported to a cliff overlooking a river and herded into the water.

LOL.

Is this messed up or what?

I grew up thinking Lemmings periodically ran off cliffs.

I'm still laughing.

twonami has a thread where some guys are bitching because he shot a squirrel.

They'd have a field day on those cameramen.

I used to think the reason for huge reductions in the lemming population was because they'd all jump off a cliff every few years. I was kind of shocked to learn that's not the case.

Shameless daytime bump.

I did it for the Lemmings. Someone has to tell their side of the story.

Crap. First I find out that Panzar tanks aren't diesel run, and Lemmings don't jump off cliffs.

I gott'a stop coming here. My world of ignorance is collapsing around me.
