Scientists Are Bringing Back The Woolly Mammoth And It’s All Due To Dogs

Scientists in South Korea are attempting to use the DNA taken from blood and fresh samples of a 40,000 year-old (albeit well-preserved) woolly mammoth corpse to clone one and BRING IT BACK TO LIFE.

But with the success that South Korean biotech company Sooam Biotech has had cloning dogs, they decided why not make the jump to huge extinct animals.

What WILL they think of next?
