Lions and (sabre-tooth) Tigers and Bears, Oh my!

Well, not really sabre-tooth tigers, but they are talking about lions, and cheetahs, and elephants. And considering the reaction of ranchers to the re-introduction of gray wolves, I strongly suspect this won’t get much reaction beyond ridicule.

“Obviously, gaining public acceptance is going to be a huge issue, especially when you talk about reintroducing predators,” said lead author Josh Donlan, of Cornell University. “There are going to have to be some major attitude shifts.”

Ya think???

    The heat wave you just felt is the collective friction of all the big game hunters in America who usually have to go to Africa for this kind of stuff rubbing their hands together in glee.

    I think it’s a dumb idea, although the look on the pronghorn’s face the first time a cheetah busted a move would be a Kodak moment…
