Resurrecting Extinct Species......
Saw an article in National Geographic about it....While I can see all kinds of down sides to it, I've always thought Mega-Fauna were kind of neat....It would be kinda cool to see Wooly Mammoths, Irish Elk, and Longhorn Bison roaming the plains...(Giant Sloths not so much)but while I was thinking about it, I had an epiphany...while they're at it, they could cook up a bunch of saber-toothed cats and a few packs of Dire Wolves and turn them loose in Chicago.....Bingo! Gang problem solved!

A large toothy lizard...Meh....but he probably tastes like chicken...
Maybe, maybe not. Chicago streets would be quite limiting to a predator the size of T-rex. Cool factor and intimidation off the charts, but them 'bangers know the territory and soon would be hiding in buildings either too high for the 'rex to get to or behind heavier walls.
Now turn a pack of velociraptors loose, and I'd love to watch! I suspect even if gunfire became involved, the gangs would be hard-pressed to survive any encounter with a like number of raptors. And they're small enough to have all sorts of advantages in an urban environment!
I went to see a dinosaur exhibit at a museum recently to catch up on the latest paleontology. It seems that the scientists now feel that the old dinosaurs are close enough to the birds we know that they repeatedly referred to birds as "modern avian dinosaurs" in the exhibit. I got a kick out of this - there's a certain machismo in being able to say you're cleaning your shotgun in preparation for the September 1st dinosaur opener.:jester:

Dinosaurs, probably impossible, as the DNA has degraded too much. Biologists have actually examined it (aka Jurassic Park) and there simply isn't proper DNA available. But more recent animals like from the sabretooth era, yeah.
Leopards with opposable thumbs - intelligent or not - scare the bejesus outta me!
But the REAL question here is: Would said leopards shoot a .270?
I know cougars that have moved beyond the .270. I think a leopards would too.
A few million years from now, as man climbs his way back up from being driven back to caveman days he will dig up millions of laptops and scientific instruments and ponder who made it and what happened to them....AGAIN :jester::rotflmao::rotflmao:

I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!
Of course, many of the prehistoric insect species survived, anyway, so maybe they would be a less well-adapted species, that would breed with present day insects and actually degrade their ability to survive.
alright.. I'll play that game...
You are one of them.

I know what I'm doing, it just doesn't look like it.
That's obvious, tax them.
After first taking their guns away..............
The question is would the coyotes have thumbs. I understand that a .270 is an adequate coyote rifle.
