After being extinct for nearly 10,000 years, the woolly mammoth may return

Jurassic Park’s fantasy may soon become a real nightmare.

South Korean and Russian scientists are attempting to bring back to life a woolly mammoth.

Holy bones!

They are planning to clone the DNA of woolly mammoth fossils and implant the new egg cells in the womb of an Indian elephant.

If everything goes according to schedule, the first woolly mammoth of this era will be born in another 22 months.

The leader of this project is controversial South Korean researcher Hwang Woo-Suk. He became a national hero in the ’90s when he succeeded in cloning cows and dogs, but fell into disgrace in 2005 when the world discovered that he fabricated experiments with human stem cells.

After being extinct for nearly 10,000 years the woolly mammoth may return to this planet.

He will have a lot of catching up to do with his comrades on Capitol Hill.
