According to The Telegraph, China's "cloning factories" are getting ready to start producing pets, cattle, and sniffer dogs. Europe, where cloning is banned, is not impressed.

But Xu Xiaochun, chairman of Chinese biotechnology company BoyaLife that is backing the facility, dismissed such concerns.

“Let me ask one question. Was this ban based on scientific rationale or ethical rationale or political agenda?” Mr Xu told The Telegraph.

“Legislation is always behind science. But in the area of cloning, I think we are going the wrong way and starting to kill the technology.”
