    Holy crap I can't believe this is finally being covered. It was only mentioned briefly on Leonard Nemoy's "In Search Of" back in the '70s, otherwise it's barely been covered.

    I'm so glad to see Streetfilms pointing the lens this modern "extinction" and possible recovery. Can't wait for the feature version.

    The SUV lobbyist was brilliantly played. Yep, ZOZOs should to to WY,,,,uh, I don't think with those fast roads they'd last long. Of course, I don't think they'd go there - no children to play with on the streets...
