Speaking of lemmings and of myths...
"The suicide myth was further propagated by Walt Disney documentary
White Wilderness in 1958 which includes footage of lemmings migrating
and running head-long over a ledge. An investigation in 1983 by the
Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's Brian Vallee, showed that the Disney
film makers faked the entire sequence using imported lemmings (bought
from Inuit children), a snow covered turntable on which a few dozen
lemmings were forced to run, and literally throwing lemmings into the
sea to show the alleged suicides."
Two thumbs down for Disney!!! BOOOOOOHHHHISSSS
