"The factory won’t stop at cows. It also plans to clone racehorses, pets and even sniffer dogs."

Cloning should not be allowed. Thanks for sharing.

maybe they are just working on getting Mao back to life? The world really needs a few more dictators.
I'm sure there is a market for ANYTHING and ANYONE to be cloned. If there is a demand, supply. It almost sounds like a capitalist way of thinking...who would have thought communism would go so low!!! (sarcasm for those who don't get my dark humor).

It is a sick world, China now has joined the US to destroy our precious Planet Earth. Maybe Monsanto can give China some advice! $$$. China is buying up our (Australian) cattle and dairy industry for a song to feed China and we cannot afford to buy beef or dairy products anymore!

As Colleen points out, people really don't want this. I think most people find the idea dangerous and revolting. Of course, if there's money in it, somebody has to do it.

So long as I don't have to eat the garbage, I reserve the right for any country to destroy it's citizens if they refuse to stand up and do something about it. The U.S. included.
