Why we use fire to scare animals

AcademicBiologyNCERTClass 6

According to the international team of archaeologists, the traces of campfires indicate that fire was discovered around 1 million years ago.

Early humans were as terrified of fire as the animals were. But later on, they took control of the fire. They used two stones and banged each other to create sparks. Later on, they used two sticks and rubbed them to get fire. They used it for cooking and also used it for protection against animals.

Still, we are using fire to scare wild animals during forest trekking, expeditions, animal attack, etc., as we humans somewhat learned to control fire, but animals are still scared of it.
