Korean Company to Clone Dead Pets

In a move possibly more fitting to a plot in Stephen King’s "Pet Sematary," a Korean company plans to offer animal lovers the chance to "bring back" their dead companions through cloning, the Guardian reported.

RNL Bio on Friday announced it would work with Seoul National University scientists, who created the first cloned canine, "Snuppy," to offer customers a re-creation of their deceased pet for $150,000.

The company received its first order from a California woman seeking to clone a dead pit bull that saved her life from an attack by another dog, the Guardian reported.

In working on Bernann McKunney’s request, scientists were to use preserved ear tissue from the dog and said the chance of success is around 25 percent.
