maybe they're supposed to be extinct

This morning's USA Today has a story about "rewilding" the Great Plains of North America. Somebody thinks it's a good idea to set loose the cousins of extinct species like mastodons, mammoths and saber-toothed tigers. The idea is to use elephants and lions or maybe regular tigers. Perhaps PETA can put full body wigs on the elephants so they'll look more like wooly mammoths. I went to the website of the journal Nature looking for the original article on "rewilding." It costs $8 a month so I found a different, free article on their site: "Lion Attacks on the Rise."
