We are your favorite cloning company.

If you seen the movie 6th day, a futuristic film where cloning is technically advanced but human cloning is still illegal. Schwarzenegger played the role of Adam Gibson who found a clone of himself after returning home from work. I guess most of you already seen the movie.

Well this post is not about that movie but about cloning. I just read this news at FoxNews and was really amazed that a Korean company is planning to offer cloning services. Well just read the rest of the news below and do not forget to comment your opinion.

"In a move possibly more fitting to a plot in Stephen King’s "Pet Sematary," a Korean company plans to offer animal lovers the chance to "bring back" their dead companions through cloning, the Guardian reported.

RNL Bio on Friday announced it would work with Seoul National University scientists, who created the first cloned canine, "Snuppy," to offer customers a re-creation of their deceased pet for $150,000.

The company received its first order from a California woman seeking to clone a dead pit bull that saved her life from an attack by another dog, the Guardian reported.

In working on Bernann McKunney’s request, scientists were to use preserved ear tissue from the dog and said the chance of success is around 25 percent."
