Cloning Fluffy

The Korean firm RNL Bio is offering to clone your pet for $150,000. How dumb is that? Here's an idea: go adopt an animal at your local shelter and drop of that check for 150 grand. I'm sure they could use the money and the world would be a better place.

The world's first pet cloning service is to offer animal lovers the chance to recreate their dead companions, it was announced today.

South Korean company RNL Bio will work alongside scientists who created the first cloned canine.

A company spokeswoman said it was already working on its first order from an American who wanted a clone of her dead pit bull.

The client, Bernann McKunney, of California, was very attached to the pet because it had saved her life during an attack by another dog.

Kim Yoon said that ear tissue from the dog had been preserved at a US biotech laboratory before its death.
