Researchers transferred embryos to 12 mothers to produce two pups
South Korean scientists once led by a disgraced stem cell researcher said on monday that they have created the worlds first cloned wolves, which were produced to help an endagered species.
A different team from the same university cloned the first dog in 2005. The effort behind this cloning is to bring back the South Korea wolf species that hasn't been spotted in the wild for over 20 years. The only known one's still alive are in a pack of 10 at a nature park in Seoul.
The cloning took 251 reconstructed embryos to 12 surrogate mothers to produce two living clones. wolves are considered among the hardes animals to clone because of their reproductive cycle.
