These scientists (some would call them mad scientists) want to introduce African animals, including cheetahs, lions, and elephants, to the Great Plains of the US. Is this insanity or genius? I'm not sure, but you have to wonder about a guy who says "Lions eat people. There has to be a pretty serious attitude shift on how you view predators." What kind of shift are we talking about here? I mean, I could see arguing that the lions wouldn't actually eat anybody, but that's not what he's saying. Instead, what I think he's saying is that we should write off a few people getting devoured by the beasts as a minor nuisance compared to how cool it would be to have lions running around in Kansas.

Still, the whole lions thing is pretty cool. I was just imagining the other day when golfing what it would be like if there was a chance that a lion could rush out of the bushes next to the cart. It would certainly spice up the round.
