Without doubt organisms have changed the earth and its climate, however, these species would have grown and developed gradually over time. So, buffalo
farts and belches would have just been part of the carbon cycle.
I s'pose you could argue that removing them has given us room in the carbon cycle to fill with our emissions. But I doubt that was at the forefront
of the hunter's minds.
For the moose, I guess with a choice between twiggy branches and sweet berries, who can blame them, heh.
Maybe we could send them bags of twiglets, looks similar to their normal food, a bit tastier, and just as lacking in nutrition as a branch.
