PostSubject: Animal Cloning   Tue Aug 05, 2008 7:09 pm

Just seen on the news that a lady in America paid for her dying pet dog to be cloned and spent over 25 thousand dollars. shes over the moon of course but others aren't happy saying it shouldn't be done.
What are your feelings? Is it ok to clone animals such as our pets?

My 10 year old boy just came out with a statement whilst watching the news saying they should clone animals that are on the extinct list such as monkeys for example (who are also in the news today). So would you agree to just cloning endangered animals?

Please discuss.

Expensive I agree, but if it was used say for animals on the endangered list then surely it would be money well spent.

Where does it all come from my friend.... the good old tax payers LOL
Plus if is was discussed world wide I am sure there would be funds available for such things seeing as many large organisations fund breeding programs for such matters.
