The film showed how these little rodents bred as though there were no tomorrow when food was abundant, quickly became overpopulated, and apparently due to a herding instinct combined with a drive to find new feeding grounds, before long were following each other in massive numbers to a cliff over the ocean, plunging over the edge and dying down below. I was astonished at this sad spectacle.
