Clone Could Mean Return Of Woolly Mammoth

Scientists say that if they can successfully clone a 40,000 year old horse, they might be able to bring back another long-extinct species.  The foal was found in the frozen subsoil of a Siberian crater known as the Mouth of Hell and they're now taking cells from it in an effort to clone the species back to life.  A researcher at Russia's Mammoth Museum said that the foal was perfectly preserved so they were able to get samples from what he calls a unique find for biotechnology research.  A Russian-South Korean team of scientists claims that experimenting on the foal is the first step in their ultimate goal of bringing back the Woolly Mammoth.
