interesting story but thats crazy. Man or more to the point scientist need to quit messing with mother nature. I guess it just escapes their over educated minds that people live in the plains states and depend on their ranches and the animals they raise for their livlihood. Not to mention the kids waiting at busstops ect. Easy for celebraties to support radical ideas when it dosen't affect them as much. Can you imagine going camping with Lions. Or turning your dog out to the yard to be lunch. Or the yard dogs on these ranches. Sorry guys, I'll shut up now! lol
Yup, that wan front page of all of our papers yesterday... seems like a bit of a crazy plan to me. I can hear the news reports now " well, a pack of lions escaped their habitat and are roaming the streets of Edminton" lol, one of the articles said that a large fence will also be needed. Haha, no kidding. Well, It all seems a little crazy and extreme to me. I think that it just sounds like African Lion Safari gone wild. I think that it will take a lot of selling before anyone will buy into this idea.
I saw that in the NY times. I must say that introducing things into this part of the world would be detrimental to animal and human society, after all we complain when the species that take up this world move into our backyards, and with the development we are making, I think we are just bringing another species into a troubled world. Thats just my input.
