ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of a forum held by the British Veterinary Association Animal Welfare Foundation (BVA AWF) about cloning of large animals. British Equine Veterinary Association president Madeleine Campbell said that among the reasons why someone wants to clone a large animal are to preserve an animal and for medical purposes but it involves ethical considerations. James Yeates, Bristol University resident in animal welfare, ethics and law, added that companies offer cloning services to people who want to resurrect their dead pet.
