Human Evolution Based on Bird Attacks?

Maybe the reason that we humans evolved to become so war-like is that we were constantly having to defend ourselves?not just from attacks by each other but from snakes?and BIRDS.

A new study suggests that prehistoric birds of prey made meals out of some of our earliest human ancestors. Researchers drew this conclusion after studying more than 600 bones from modern-day monkeys. They had collected the bones from beneath the nests of African crowned eagles in the Ivory Coast's Tai rainforest. A full-grown African crowned eagle is roughly the size of an American bald eagle, which typically weighs about 10 to 12 pounds. They found punctures and scratches on many of the monkey skulls that were similar to those found on prehistoric bones, meaning that the appetites of large birds could have played a major part in human evolution.
