Recommended Posts

A South Korean firm says cloning pets could become cheaper in future thanks to a new technique it has developed. RNL Bio said it had successfully cloned two puppies from a beagle using stem cells from the dog's fat tissue.

The firm said its new technique had more than doubled the success rate of the current method of cloning. There has been no independent confirmation of the claim, but South Korea has become a world leader in the lucrative field of cloning pets.

Why is it messed up? It's just cloning not like their putting dog DNA into a human egg or something.

There is already enough stray Dogs roaming around.

There would be millions of Dogs world wide put to sleep every week because shelters and animal care places can't find homes for them. If cloning Dog's becomes the norm, then that number would double, because people would clone their old pets instead of getting a new one, so more would be put to sleep.... thats sad!

No matter how "cheap" it becomes, cloning will always be a luxury of the rich. Middle and lower class will never have the extra money to clone a pet, I know I would rather just save the money and get a new puppy myself.

um seriously, how about we focus on animal population control instead of ways to make it more out of hand.
