                                                LONDON - Dolly the sheep, the world's first cloned mammal, died on Friday, her creators at Scotland's Roslin Institute said. Veterinarians gave the world famous six-year-old sheep a lethal injection after they discovered signs of progressive lung disease.

The birth of Dolly in July 1996 made headlines around the world and sparked criticisms and fears that human cloning would not be far off. "Dolly is dead. I can confirm that," a spokeswoman at the institute told Reuters. Dr Harry Griffin, the head of the institute, said lung infections were common in older sheep.

                                                i'm wondering if they cloned the cancer from the original sheep tho.

Do NOT fancy cloning of humans at all.
