favourite example of the “herbivores are harmless” fallacy is the Cape Buffalo. If they’re unhappy about the presence of something that upsets them, they’ll make it go away…
…and if the something-that-upsets-them can’t run away fast enough (people, for one)
then its going-away can be messy and permanent.

Someone (I think it was writer Robert Ruark) once described Cape Buffalo
as “looking at you as if you owe them money.”

This lot all know you owe them money…

…but the big guy on the left knows how much, and that your repayment is late.
