Clone A Dog?
So your favorite pet has been a part of your family for years but has finally passed on. Would you be willing to pay big bucks to clone your pet?
A Hollywood businessman is paying $310,000 to clone his two dogs. Peter Onruang says Wolfie, a terrier-schnauzer mix, was more than just a pet to him -- she was "like a daughter." She died two years ago at age 15. Her sister, who also died, is Bubble. But Onruang plans to bring them back to life. After doing some research, he found a South Korean biotechnology company called RNL Bio, that can and will clone animals. Onruang saved his dogs' stem cells and then started HollywoodPaintball.com so he could earn and save the $310,000 the clonings would cost. The new dogs will look identical to his dead dogs, and have similar dispositions and he could end up with several of them.
