An interesting article about how
hunting is driving evolution in reverse
appears in Newsweek this week ["It’s Survival of the Weak and Scrawny," by Lily Huang. Newsweek, 03 Jan 2009].
It does makes sense when you think about it in light of evolutionary theory since hunting removes all the strong alpha male specimens which provide the best trophies, leaving behind "losers" to breed!
