"South Korean scientists say they have engineered four beagles that glow red using cloning techniques that could help develop cures for human diseases."

I only remember seeing the one about glowing pigs a while ago. But it seems it's done to various animals. I know, I know, power of science, knowledge is good and so on, but I still get creeped out every time I read something like this...

To me the fact that they gave all four the same name suggests the kind of clinical coldness that could make cloning dangerous.

Glow in the dark dogs. I hope this is coming from private funding and not my tax dollars.
