Pet Cloning

Our pets provide years of enjoyment. So much so, that the possibility of preserving their existence indefinitely is a tantalizing prospect. On this program, John Woestendiek discussed the science and practice of cloning pets.

Warn the jedi… 😉

  1. This reminds me of an old “Governator” movie where they had “re-pet” services. As much as I like my pets, paying more than few thousand for a pet seems excessive for people making less than millions a year. It seems folks who spend irresponsibly will do it for pets as much as for illegal drugs. No, we should not ban pets. And nor should we ban drugs, but I digress.

    As much as I don’t like irresponsible spending, I hope the pet cloning industry much success, and I hope the science behind it to extend to more useful things. Will it bring about “brainless clones” which can serve as organ donors of the future. Could immortality be far behind?

    Anyway, happy trails to John. I wish I had the money to be able to travel with my pets.
