Genocide is a human invention

Seldom indeed under natural conditions does one species threaten the existence of another. Genocide is a human invention, and only man commonly wages wars of extermination. Moreover, though to eat and be eaten is certainly a law of nature, we are learning that it is neither the only law nor alone responsible for the maintenance of the balance.
