Horse cloning causes controversy in the USA
Horse lovers in the States have begun cloning in an attempt to bring back their favourite and much loved horses.
However, the practice of cloning had created a discord amongst breeders who believe that cloning is replacing breeding and acting as a shortcut to creating a champion horse. The Los Angeles Times reports that breeders are unhappy with the idea, claiming that it threatens their industry.
Carol Harris, a horse breeder and owner of Bo-Bett Farm near Ocala, told the LA Times, “Breeding is an art, cloning is just replication.”
At present cloned horses are currently not allowed to compete in breed-sanctioned events, but this could change in the future.
