Scientists are proposing reintroducing large mammals such as elephants, lions, cheetahs and wild horses to North America to replace populations lost 13,000 years ago.I don't think we need any more wild horses, though. We've got plenty around here. The Army training area at Peason Ridge is awash with equines. I understand that out West, the horses and burros are a pain in the wazoo. Let those scientists keep their horses.
I think elephants would do well in the semi-tropic environment of Louisiana. Lions and cheetah might thrive too. The scientists might have to think about what that would mean to the native species, like man.
There is a general provision in Louisiana law that if someone is threatened by a wild animal, that person generally can legally shoot the animal in defense of human life.
An elephant in Momma's okra would qualify, I guess, and a lion in the chickens certainly would qualify.
I need a bigger rifle. Something with H&H behind the caliber designation.
