Not everyone, of course, thinks that "Little Nicky" is a very good idea. The Humane Society and other pet advocacy groups, for example, believe that cloning pets is wasteful, given the 3m to 4m pets destroyed every year in animal shelters in the US. Other concerns are more on the biological side of things, where it is claimed that cloned animals may not live as long as ordinary animals and may have more health problems.
"Little Nicky" was the first sale from Califoria-based biotech firm Genetic Savings & Clone (GSC), who charged $50,000 to reincarnate Julie's dead pet.
