AAVS Warns Consumers of the Animal Suffering Involved with Dog Cloning



California-based BioArts International announced today that it will work with disgraced South Korean scientist Woo-Suk Hwang to begin a series of five online auctions for the chance to clone a dog, with the bidding starting at $100,000.

This latest dog cloning venture, however, is nothing more than another money-making scheme designed to take advantage of pet lovers. Hundreds of animals are subjected to painful and invasive procedures just to produce a single cloned cat or dog, and yet it is extremely unlikely that a cloned animal will resemble the original. Even though the evidence is clear that you cannot resurrect a pet from the dead, the company names its project "Best Friends Forever," trying to capitalize on people's attachment to their companion animals. With all this deceit and animal suffering, anyone who loves their pets should not be tempted by cloning.
