The Persistence Hunt

[YouTube - Link]
The can also be titled "running after an animal for hours until it collapses from exhaustion."  The persistence hunt is believed by some to be one of the most ancient methods of hunting. The tribesman of the Kalahari Desert tracks down a Kudu and literally chases after it for 8 hours until it surrenders out of sheer exhaustion.

Yes, this is how humans hunted for about 2 million years up until the late paleolithic period. Yes, we are animals that evolved to run. The only animals who can match us are dogs and horses (our best friends!), and we can still beat them over several days.
