I have said for many years that I want to have a Mammoth Burger before I die.

I'm rootin' for you, science.

Jeff Goldblum for the win.

All we need is the Mammoth DNA an a womb large enough to handle the subject.

We're looking at you Rosie O Donnell...

They find them frozen and edible every once and a while. It could probably be aranged.

Considering that they were originally killed off by global warming, or the food needs of a growing human population, or both, I doubt they'll be back for very long.

How about just focusing on some regular Elephants with big tusks - Tuskers. The keys on my old piano are really starting to yellow.

Well at least they've only been frozen for 4000 years or so.

?
 
2007-06-27 07:46:13 AM  
I'm for it just as long as John Williams does the soundtrack.
 
2007-06-27 07:50:10 AM  
I'd love this. Bring them back so we can hunt them again.

/Gonna go practice with my atlatl later.

The journalist seems to have no clue as to:
1. How to write a coherent article.
2. What anyone he/she is quoting is actually saying.

This WILL happen by the way.. Just a matter of time..

Animals go extinct for a reason: it is unwise to return them to an ecosystem that has become accustomed to their lack of presence.

That's why we should hunt them. Everybody wins!

Scientists get to play with their toys,
General public gets to see a Wooly Mammoth,
Hunters get to hunt the biggest beast we've ever hunted as a species again,
and overweight furries get new inspiration.

Won't somebody please think of the Dodos

In this case, the reason is some guy named Thag.

dittybopper: Hunters get to hunt the biggest beast we've ever hunted as a species again,

Bigger than a whale?!?

I'd be excited to have one restored. And the techniques would give a lot more hope for reconstituting currently endangered species later if they go extinct.

I don't see any problem with "interfering with the ecosystem" here. It's not likely they're going to be released into the wild, certainly not in any great numbers. They're not like Australian rabbits.
 
2007-06-27 09:00:26 AM  
My what a cruel world we live in.

Just as we are getting to the apex of global warming, we want to bring back the extraordinarily hairy woolly mammoth so it can suffer in the sweltering heat.

/Although, I wouldn't mind having a woolly mammoth jacket for the odd cool snap that happens from time-to-time.

Well, I was thinking land animal, but I didn't SAY that, so you are correct.

By the way, there is no species of large animal that man hasn't successfully hunted with just spears.
