I was thinking much the same thing when I first heard of this news story.
2 months ago, a missionary from Korea informed our congregation that dog is still sold and eaten as a "macho" dish that promises vitality and virility to those who consume it!
Even though it's probably too expensive to clone dogs for food, one can easily see a motivation for these people to try to clone many of what this article calls "endangered species", which also happen to be the source of exotic animal extracts and body parts that are in such high demand in many Asian countries.
Interesting article about a nation which eats dogs???
Quote..... "Gaegogi literally means "dog meat" in Korean. Gaegogi, however, is often mistaken as the term for Korean soup made from dog meat, bosintang. Selling dog meat has been illegal in South Korea since 1984; however, dog farms still exist and some people still eat dog meat." (Wiki)
