    "staging footage was standard practice in natural history programmes "

    Um... duh!

    Seriously, people are complaining about this? Who does not know that nature shows use stock footage, zoo footage, captive / trained animals etc?

    Oh man, I hope that the scene where the leopard mom's cub gets eaten by a snake while she's out trying to hunt antelope wasn't forced. I'm still traumatized by that. It wouldn't surprise me, but I should hope not ALL photographers would do that.

    There are way too many examples of stuff like this, so I try not to think about it.

    Lots of times it's painfully obvious.

    Honey badgers are so badass that they don't need staged scenes.

    I don't get either but that is irrelevant to the comedic impact and it's resulting effect on the male centric hegemony contained therein... - svendo
    when I was a n00b there were no message boards to clutter up with trolling posts. I had to do it the hard way....standing at the mall making fun of people loudly - Platy
