Wildlife Conversation

PZ and P and I have had a nice three-way email conversation today about wildlife--I sent PZ that ridiculously sappy "lion reunion" YouTube that's been making everyone cry (me, too), and he responded with a nice shot of a stack of illegally trapped, endangered wolves in Ulanbaator, and then P chimed in with theories about the upstate deer population, and PZ opined that we should reintroduce wolves here, and cougar, and maybe tigers, and I sent him the dumb story about escaped buffalo in our region. It beats working. The dumbest story of all may be that NYS is seriously talking about starting a bear season here--all based on a small handful of wandering black bears seen in the area recently. Not even nuisance bears, mind you.
