This would encounter similar objections as sex education, immunisations, and stem cell research.

If animals can be unextincted then people might be less cautious with already endangered species. This will be as outrageous for environmentalists as condoms are for the Vatican.

On the other hand, seeing as our collapsing financial system, the impending nuclear war with Iran, and climate change might take us back to the Stone Age, perhaps it’s a good precaution to re-establish our natural prey. This will give us something to live on until civilisation re-emerges.
