+ - Scientists Have 'High Chance' of Cloning 43,000-Year-Old Woolly Mammoth->

Submitted by EwanPalmer
EwanPalmer (2536690) writes "Scientists in Siberia have claimed they have a "good chance" of cloning a woolly mammoth which has been frozen for the past 43,000 years.

The team believe they can extract DNA taken from the blood of the animal to mix it with that of an elephant. However, the team have also spoke of the ethical dilemmas of bringing back to life an animal which became extinct thousands of years ago."
