Lou Hawthorne, CEO of BioArts, which auctioned off 5 dog cloning procedures last July, has announced the birth of Sir Lancelot, a golden retriever.
Beloved pet of Ed and Nina Otto of Boca Raton, Florida paid $155,000 at the auction to have the chance of cloning the original “Lancy” who died, at age 11, in January 2008.
More non sense from the article:
“He was just special”, said Nina Otto, 66. “He was a human dog,” said Ed, 79. Ed and Nina had plenty of money to participate in the BioArts auction. And were banking on this technology well before the original Lancelot died, having banked the dog’s DNA samples five years earlier.
