A Korean scientist claims to have cloned 17 dogs. Oh, good. We were running low on extra dogs.
The breed he cloned was the rare Tibetan mastiff. I think probably there are rarer animals in the world that could use a population boost. Dogs? Hardly. Thousands of adoptabled dogs are available in Oklahoma City alone. I’m not sure about South Korea, but I’m guessing they aren’t wanting for 17 extra dogs either.
This is the same scientist who was disgraced after claiming to have cloned human embryo cells and then later recanting. Yikes. So faking human cloning was bad idea No. 1. Actually cloning dogs was bad idea No. 2. In my book, he’s just like an irresponsible breeder. He better have homes for all 17 of those dogs, and even if he does, that’s 17 shelter dogs that will go homeless.
