Photo: Ten Years After Dolly, No Human Clones, But a Barnyard of Copies



A flock of cloned sheep relaxes on a Scottish farm. These sheep—created a year after the world's first cloned mammal, Dolly—lived with the famous ewe until she was euthanized in 2003 after developing a lung infection.

Now, ten years after Dolly's debut, scientists have created copies of a barnyard's worth of species, including cats, dogs, goats, and deer—but no humans.
