Cloned goat

A cloned pashmina goat Noori is pictured at a laboratory near Srinagar, India. Heavy snow has killed nearly 25,000 pashmina goats in the Indian Himalayas, threatening supplies of silky cashmere wool used to make high-end scarves, an official said on March 5, 2013. Some 50 tonnes of raw pashmina wool, known to be some of the best in the world, is produced there each year and sent to neighboring Kashmir where it is processed and woven into scarves and shawls which sell for up to 800 dollars apiece.
