Not related to humans? You'd think so with so many being lemmings and going off a cliff together.

I've been in the arctic when there was a high lemming population. I never saw evidence of any of the folk wisdom such as lemmings going over a cliff.. There are lots of them but they seem to know that they have to try to escape predators. I've never seen a lemming of this olor.
