Another Reason To Stop Eating Meat

Eight ‘clone farm’ cows have been born in the UK, the Daily Mail can reveal.

PZ says:
It's bad enough that animals (who have expressed maternal attachment to their offspring no less), have been enslaved and tortured so consumers can have steak for dinner.
Now nature is being assaulted with cloning, because certain merchants want to get around laws. When more people stop investing in this kind of madness, it will stop.
