The Native Americans had a perfect system for running entire herds of buffalo off of cliffs. Utilizing animal coats, they capitalized on the bison's protective instincts to stay between a lone calf and wolves. This allowed the Natives to lead the calm herd to pre-constructed 'drive-lanes' leading to the cliffs. The stampede was spurred by the sudden appearance of the entire tribe, previously hidden by leather hides. A few moments of panic followed by sudden death (most died instantly; the rest were quickly killed by the hunters)... I decided Temple Grandin would approve of the method.
More on our trip later.
