An American woman blinked back tears of joy Tuesday as she cuddled puppies cloned in South Korea from her beloved former pit bull terrier.
"This is a miracle," said Bernann McKinney from Hollywood in California, hugging five clones of Booger at Seoul National University's veterinary school.
RNL Bio, the company which arranged the re-creation of Booger through his refrigerated ear tissue, hailed the event as the world's first commercial cloning of a pet dog. The company originally charged $150,000 to clone Booger, but it agreed to come down to $50,000 to celebrate what it calls the first commercial deal for a pet dog.
Well, she got 5 puppies - so that's "only" $10,000 each.
What do you think, worth it?
