giant sloths http://iowapublicradio.org en Modern Extinct Animals http://iowapublicradio.org/post/modern-extinct-animals <p>We know great herds of bison once roamed Iowa.

Host Ben Kieffer talks with ISU's <a href="http://www.eeob.iastate.edu/faculty/ClarkW/homepage.html" target="_blank">Bill Clark</a>, who'll tell us about animals that disappeared from our state with the arrival of European settlers and how some species of bears, bobcats, and cougars are coming back.
