This is not completely true. There is evidence that many large
herbivore species became
extinct at the same time as the arrival of man in the Americas. The
"Noble Savage" myth is somewhat exagerrated. Many native tribes have been
guilty of excessive hunting and fishing once they had the technologoy to
be able to do so.
