Woman clones beloved pet for $100 thousand
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Anyone who's experienced the loss of a beloved pet knows how devastating that loss can be - but what if we could overcome that death?
For $100 thousand dollars one South Korean company is making that possible through the science of cloning.
Danielle Tarantola's dog, named Trouble, had recently died, so she had him cloned by an animal cloning company in South Korea.
It's the only place in the world where this controversial procedure is done.
The cost? $100 thousand.
Some critics say the reason cloning is allowed in South Korea is because that country has much lower ethical standards for the treatment of dogs, and that many of the dogs used in the cloning process, like the surrogate mom are later sent back to dog farms where they are killed and eaten.
What do you think? Do you agree with dog cloning, and would you ever considering cloning your own pet? Let us know on Facebook!
