"Oh give me a home, where the what the hell?"

Ecologists and conservationists have proposed introducing big African animals--everything from lions to elephants--to Northen America.

It's supposed to be for conservation and so on, but I can see it being turned into a health policy thing.  Prides of lions chasing down anyone too obese to get away... now that would be an incentive to lose weight and stop smoking.

That'll be part of the secret ARK project, whereby the US will get as much of Earth's flora and fauna into their borders before nuking the rest of the planet.

I mis-read that as 'movie' and thought YES!!  Real life Valley of the Gwangi here we come!  Please?

A stoopid idea, bound to fail.  The same thing with reintroducing / repopulating wolves, bears, etc. in Europe.  The US can't deal with most of the big mammals they have anyway (wolves in Alaskan National PArks f'rinstance - or just outside - BAM!).  What are they thinking?

No, no, no!

Have none of you read the works of Wagner?

It's obvious the animals wil all go haywire and start killing people, and Judge Dredd will be forced to destroy them!

Fools.
