Having a dog is a bliss which no words can explain. Those furry friends can lighten up your day just by a wag of their tail and make you forget all of your worries. Science has already proved that those pet owners who spent more time with their four-legged friends have a healthy and long life. However, the death of a dog can bring an enormous void in your heart. A recent study by South Korean scientists has proved that by doing some experiments, they can actually bring your dead dog to back to life.
The Sooam Biotech Research Foundation from South Korea has apparently cloned over 800 dogs since 2006, and if the pet owner has $100,000 to spend then they can even bring back your dead dog. Apart from their dog cloning services, they also clone cattle and pigs for medical research and breed preservations.
The obtained embryo from this process is then implanted in a surrogate mother dog. Two months later, the owner will finally have their dog back as a puppy.
"These people have very a strong bond with their pets… and cloning provides a psychological alternative to the traditional method of just letting the pet go and keeping their memory," said Sooam researcher Wang Jae-Woong.
It was later found out that it was nothing but a hoax and as a result of which, Woo-Suk served a two-year suspended prison sentence.
"I think the only way to win the public's trust back is making more genuine scientific breakthroughs," Hwang Woo-Suk said.
