‘Genetic engineering continues to reach disturbing heights in China, where researchers at the biotech firm Sino Gene in Beijing have found a way to change a dog’s nature through genetic modification and then reproduce the animal via cloning. They could, for example, give a dog bigger muscles and then make copies of it.
The scientists recently created a cloned beagle called Long Long, who is the first dog to be cloned using a parent who was genetically modified. While scientists have been cloning dogs in South Korea for 12 years now, this marks the first time that a genetically engineered dog was duplicated. This unnatural male puppy was born in late May at the same lab where his father, Apple, was born last year.’
