Um, the animals that we wiped out are the ones that shouldn't be brought back; with a few exceptions (like the passenger pigeon), we killed them for a REASON. I'm perfectly fine with not having to fight sabertoothed tigers and dire wolves when I go to get the mail. And the lack of short-faced bears in the grocery store parking lot I consider a PLUS, to say nothing of the Haast's eagles not trying to eat my face.
I expect that the real danger, though, isn't in bringing back extinct animals, but extinct plants. If an animal kills somebody, we'll notice, and we'll do something about it. If kudzu eats the South, well, what can you do?
That, or if someone brings back Neanderthals, and a court rules that they don't count as "human" for legal purposes. All SORTS of ugliness could result from that. While I doubt that'll happen any time soon, or that you'll be the one to make that decision when it does, I put here (just in case) a picture of a reconstruction of what one would look like with modern clothing and a modern haircut:
Looks pretty darn human to me.
