“A Californian dog-lover has agreed to pay $150,000 to have her dead pit bull recreated in the world’s first commercial pet cloning project.
The dog, named Booger, died a year and a half ago but his owner kept part of his ear in cold storage and South Korean scientists will now attempt to create an exact replica of the pet.”
Snuppy, the first dog ever cloned is pictured here.
California based company called “Genetic Savings and Clone” went belly up in 2006 when they realized there was no real market for bringing our beloved pets back to life through cloning!
Think of all the good that could be done with the money spent on cloning pets!
