Water Hunting

In Pakistan’s Indus Valley a group of hunters still practice a 5,000-year-old method of catching waterfowl. Hunters tie pet herons to a hoop in the river, then drop to their necks in the water wearing masks made from real birds. They’d wiggle their heads to mimic a swimming bird, then grab any waterfowl that landed nearby.
