Lemmings mass suicide is a Disney creation
I love Disney but, as many, I am feeling a fool after knowing that what is shown in this 1958 Oscar winning award documentary, "White Wilderness," is FAKE. Everything is edited and lemmings DO NOT commit mass suicide. The film was done in Bow River, Canada, and not in the Arctic ocean as the narrator says. Useless documentary showing lies wins Oscar. That sounds familiar! This is a harmless lie, but it is a lie. The problem is that everyday there are lots of stories at the news that are also edited in a way that we believe it is the truth. The myth inspired a game and is in the hearts and minds of many people. The only white truth about lemmings is that they turn white in winter, a very known tact animals have to avoid becoming a prey: camouflage.
