    yes. absolutely. no other species riots. it is a side effect of our societal practices. even the great apes do not riot, however chimpanzees will definitely throw a fit when enticed. prime example would be the planet earth series that shows chimps hunting monkeys and the males who did not contribute to the hunt, got no share of the meat, and threw a tantrum. that is about as close as it gets. you got to understand, no other animal builds societies like we do, so there is no reason or drive to riot. also, most animals are above and beyond that sort of behavior. it is destinctly a human action.

    No. Chimps can and do gang up and murder other chimps, especially if they are males from neighboring troops. Bees and wasps can also swarm and attack intruders. Monkeys, as many as 400 of them, are known to raid Indian villages for food in Asia. Elephants may also raid human villages for crops.

      chimps fighting chimps from other troops is not rioting. it is due to territorial disputes solely. a riot in this sense would have to be against members of their own troop, elephants and monkeys raiding crop is eating for survival

    From the looks of swarming ants, it's a good guess riot is not unique to humans.  Other animals also move in herds.

      moving in herds is by no means whatsoever a riot. otherwise a herd of cattle would be rioting their entire life.
