This South Korean cloning facility promises to bring back your dead dog

• sciencealert.com

The Sooam Biotech Research Foundation can reincarnate your dead dog, a service that would delight pet lovers - for US$100,000.

"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 and spokesman Wang Jae-Woong.

They specialise in cloning cattle and pigs for medical research and breed preservation as well, particularly developing genetically-engineered animals for use as disease models.

But it is their dog cloning service that brings in the most customers: they've cloned almost 800 dogs since 2006, with their client base including princes, celebrities, and billionaires, as well as owners and agencies who want to replicate highly skilled sniffer and rescue dogs.
