We are noncommittal when it comes to cloning articles, which is what out MooPig Cloning Department usually does. But we didn't know which department to refer this story to, since we don't have any scientists aboard MooPig central. So we sent it to the cloning department.
Also we are sorry this LINK to The SUN is intermittent valid; we try to stay current... but alas we were too slow. Sometimes the Link works, sometimes it doesn't.
Now, we are just showing off. How does this fit into the current flow of things, having a blood sample from an extinct animal? You ask? No? Oh, but it does figure in.
While the world of humans tumbles into obscurity, making humans the next big Extinction Level Event on Earth, we should go out with at least a few Wooly Mammoths around. Their remains will totally confuse the next gen of humanoid explorers, as they try to piece together ancient times.
Woolly mammoth found with blood in veins boosts chance of cloning | The Sun |News: "Hwang Woo Suk, a stem cell scientist who created the world’s first cloned dog in 2005, said that once the tissues had been treated to a nuclear transfer process, eggs would be implanted into the womb of a live elephant for a 22-month pregnancy. Semyon Grigoriev, chairman of the university's Museum of Mammoths and head of the expedition, said: "The fragments of muscle tissues, which we've found out of the body, have a natural red colour of fresh meat."

" ... A perfectly preserved woolly mammoth carcass with liquid blood has been found on a remote Arctic island, fueling hopes of cloning the Ice Age animal, Russian scientists said Thursday.CONCLUSION
The carcass was in such good shape because its lower part was stuck in pure ice, said Semyon Grigoryev, the head of the Mammoth Museum, who led the expedition into the Lyakhovsky Islands off the Siberian coast.
"The blood is very dark, it was found in ice cavities below the belly and when we broke these cavities with a poll pick, the blood came running out," he said in a statement released by the North-Eastern Federal University in Yakutsk, which sent the team.
Wooly mammoths are thought to have died out around 10,000 years ago, although scientists think small groups of them lived longer in Alaska and on islands off Siberia. (abc13. Wednesday, May 29, 2013. LINK) ... "
We don't know what we are talking about, do you?
