One stage in human evolution was carrion eaters, they’d wait for a predator to kill an animal and then just chase away the predator

There’s some vestigial behavior that’s definitely been carried on from that- like dry aged meat and “garum” sauce- so I don’t think it actually bothers people that there’s cooked bugs in their food

I imagine that a sheep stays the leader until they say, whether they mean to or not “I’m not the leader anymore” and they follow suit- because they’re literally sheep
