More scary science things

So apparently scientists have taken it upon themselves to clone a Pyrenean ibex. It’s a mountain goat. Which doesn’t sound all that interesting… I mean they manage to clone a sheep flipping years ago. Goat… sheep… how is this news?

Well, what is interesting is that the Pyrenean ibex went extinct in 2000. And although I don’t have a problem, in theory, with the cloning of animals, I do have a problem with them cloning extinct animals. Sure, sure. Sounds great. We could even start erasing some of man’s mistakes (I wonder if there is any Dodo DNA around?) but was scares me is how quickly this could get out of hand.

I’ve seen movies that make me think that cloning extinct animals is probably a bad idea.
