On Cooperation; Part 3: Monkeys and Hunting

For some reason, some people like to hunt pigs by throwing baboons at them. I can only go with the comment posted below the video: “Not sure if hilarious or horrible.”

Apparently dogs are no longer in favour as child surrogates, as this documentary shows. There actually is a recommendable novel about this scenario, albeit a slightly dystopian one (Liz Jensen, Ark Baby). The novel actually addresses one of the main concernes here: It’s hard enough to tolerate a human teenager, imagine a sexed up, hormonal monkey, fed on lots of sugar. In your home. It has hands.
