Extinct animals frozen in death such as the woolly mammoth could be "resurrected" after scientists made a breakthrough in cloning. Until now "Dolly the Sheep"-style cloning has only been achieved using live donor cells, from which DNA is transferred

As long as they do not try to bring back the dinosaurs...I'm not sure I'd want the T-Rex running around my neighborhood.

LOL....haha....Dandelion G. - you made me laugh. I was going to say "Oh, great, all I need is a huge two-tusked hairy woolly mammoth running around."

I could be wrong, but I feel pretty sure that the photo you have used for this story is of the Woolly Mammoth in the Royal BC Museum in Victoria, BC Canada. Woolly is in a lot of the promotional material for the museum and was actually recently in the local news because the exciting thunder and lightening storm that would happen every 7-10 minutes in his display was just recently shut off. The reason: too many parents complained it frightened their children. Many people are disappointed with the decision to cater to the squeaky wheels who complained. Another justification though, is that they now figure that a thunderstorm in an ice age would be pretty rare as there wouldn't be the hot weather to collide with the cold weather to cause the thunderclaps. Just thought I'd mention it. I know it doesn't really apply to the original story.

Thx, I wonder if it crossed the minds of the scientists that there is global warming at present and hey that's what drove the Mammoths onto the ice for the colder tempurature and they fell into cravasses and died.
