1996: Dolly the sheep cloned


Creating Dolly

First cloned mammal, sheep Dolly, was euthanized, because she suffered progressive lung disease and severe arthritis. There was probably no direct connection with Dolly being a clone. Lung diseases are a particular danger for sheep kept indoors and Dolly had to sleep inside for security reasons. Her stuffed remains are on display in National Museum of Scotland.
