What do herds do?

First there are big mouths and groupthink.

Then there is chasing each others tails.

This could lead to literally going off a cliff.

Typically, like wolves, they hunt viciously in packs.

When they are stalked, they run scared leaving the weakest to serve as prey.

When hunted, they are separated and slaughtered.

Sometimes they stampede and can run over anything in their path.

Occasionally, they even devour their own young to keep the herd fed.

Herds serve a survival function in nature, but when the herd is dumb, as if often the case, they die off and are left extinct. ;-)
