    I strongly suspect that was not in the top 20 reasons for supporting them. But it probably was in the top 100.

    PS: Even so, hunters have a vested interest in making the world a better place for game animals. Think about it. See, for instance Ducks Unlimited https://www.ducks.org

    This guy seems really inactive, I feel like I’ve only read this cartoonist once (if even).

    Make it fair. Limit the hunt to a single person and she/he can only use a penknife.

    I’ve got misgivings about it. Is it really fair to bring back a species in this way? The world has changed and is very inhospitable for them. (That’s why they died out in the first place.) On top of that, the mammoth-elephant hybrids they produce will have an exceptionally limited gene pool, worsened by the fact that they will almost certainly be drawing from the freshest mammoth DNA available, which was itself a genetic bottleneck population living on an Arctic island; they’ll be working with DNA that is already severely inbred.

    It’ll be pretty amazing and cool if they do it, because it’s a huge advance for genetic research, but I’m just not convinced it’s fair to the animal that they hope will result from their work.

    Most of the early efforts at conservation and preservation of endangered species were started by and financed by hunters.

    I have a framed photo, purchased at a yard sale for 25 cents, showing the Remington father / son duo posing in their trophy room with their favorite high-powered scoped rifles. All around them were stuffed animals of every type imaginable, which included a Zebra, Giraffe, and a Walrus among other “vicious” herbivores.

    Real “sportsmen”, boy,

    Considering that the company founder thinks it would be easier to create an artificial womb than to pursue ANY other existing method of cloning mammals, I wouldn’t worry about ANY mammoths coming into existence any time soon. Those wealthy hunters are paying a stupidity tax.

    Just think, with Global Warming, these bozos could be the first to make a species go extinct TWICE!

    Was it Ray Bradbury who first proposed the ‘butterfly effect?’

    Hunt, heck. I’d pay a hundred bucks just to ride one. Imagine sitting on a Columbian Mammoth like Toomai of the Elephants? You’d make more money from a petting zoo and rides than from hunting them. Besides they’d be protected by the endangered species act and be so valuable they’d be guarded like the US mint. It would be the closest thing to a sauropod we can experience.

    It would be cruel not to shoot them, what with global warming and all. (Fox news commentary)

    Sport hunting actually preserves wildlife. If wildlife has no value it tends to disappear or be poached to extinction. Look at the rebound in whitetail deer numbers.
