    Is this a real story? I hope so.

    It is indeed a real story, unless the world press has been fooled :)

    Even if it was possible it would make one wonder if it would indeed be worth it, We have the African lion heading towards being made an endangered species with numbers at an all time low and one population of the Asian Lion so mankind appear to be having a problem protecting these let alone trying to make room for extinct animals

    If we are at least going to bring something back make it the thylacine or passenger pigeon. Or we could just conserve what we have left.

    I just merged the two Cave Lion threads (so TLD's link and photo above relate to the three posts above it).
