Kashmir scientists clone rare cashmere goat

Scientists say they have successfully cloned a rare cashmere goat !!

This of course will increase production of the high value wool.


SRINAGAR, India (AP) -- Scientists said Thursday they have cloned a rare Himalayan goat in Indian-controlled Kashmir, hoping to help increase the number of animals famed for their silky soft undercoats used to make pashmina wool, or cashmere.

The March 9 birth of female kid "Noori," which means "light" in Arabic, could spark breeding programs across the region and mass production of the high-priced wool, said lead project scientist Dr. Riaz Ahmad Shah, a veterinarian in the animal biotechnology center of Sher-i-Kashmir University.

They got their goat !


At least they don't kill these special animals

Haha, are there laws that prevents the Kashmirian people from attempting to clone a human? If there are none, that I wouldn't hesitate to claim that projects will probably be started in order to clone a human being. But if I the Kashimirian people are muslims, then I strongly doubt they would go anywhere near the cloning of a human being.
