Read the summary of the study here:Human 'super predator' more terrifying than bears, wolves and dogs
University of Western Ontario, July 25th, 2016
A new study by Western University demonstrates that smaller carnivores, like European badgers, that may be prey to large carnivores, actually perceive humans as far more frightening. Globally, humans now kill smaller carnivores at much higher rates than large carnivores do, and these results indicate that smaller carnivores have learned to fear the human 'super predator' far more than they fear their traditional enemies.
