Sounds pretty awesome at first but I don't know why they would want to bring a whoolly mammoth back to life.What's next? This is wrong in so many ways. This is doing just to show that we can do it. The creature should remain dead and not be resurrected again. The Ice Age happened and this creature was killed off. What purpose would it serve if brought back? What's your opinion?

A woolly mammoth preserved in permafrost in Siberia could walk the Earth again after 10,000 years, after Russian academics signed a deal with a controversial Korean scientist to clone the animal. Hwang Woo-Suk – who created the world’s first cloned dog, Snuppy, in 2005 – will implant the nucleus from a mammoth cell into an elephant egg to create a mammoth embryo. The embryo will then be implanted into an elephant’s womb. The Koreans say research could begin this year.

Skyrim here we come! In all seriousness though, I don't think we should clone animals (besides for study) because natural selection has already gotten rid of them.

Why should we continue to find cures for diseases? Why should we continue with stem cell research? After all it's nature, if those diseases were meant to kill us then by all means lets let them kill us.

It would be the framework for preserving the life on this planet we are mowing down left and right, it would be a treasure trove of data concerning incremental changes driving evolution.

But most of all I want a wooly mammoth steak the size of something out of the Flintstones done medium rare over a hardwood fire on a spit while I howl at the moon.

No harm in bringing them back because the mammoths might have a chance of surviving the next ice age when natural selection makes sure to kill off the cancer of this earth, which is us humans.

And that is how dinosaurs take over the world again..!
In all seriousness, as long as they are able to experiment in controlled settings it should be interesting what comes out of it. Last thing we need is a Jurassic Park scenario

I think we should clone extinct animals after all we caused many of the extinctions its only fair we reverse our damage. As apex custodians of the planet we are pretty shXt at it.
