South Korea Clones Dogs With Fluorescent Protein That Makes Them Glow Red

What's Your Take: Korea Clones Glow-in-the-Dark Doggies?

It seems that Korea just can't get enough of cloning, and this time it includes sea anemones and beagles. What does one have to do with the other, you ask? Normally nothing, but recently scientists have incorporated a glowing protein into a set of cloned beagles that makes them glow under infrared light. Not only does it make for an interesting (albeit creepy-looking) combo, but it also proves that you can insert specific genes into an animal, even if it's not from their own species.

This video I caught on AP, shows why the scientists engineered the beagles with the protein in the first place. Check it out, then tell me if you think this advancement is for the best . . . or for the worst.

I think this is ridiculous. It's not a new concept, though. They have been able to make glow in the dark mice for years.
