cloned angus bull

Postby preston » Thu Apr 28, 2005 6:56 am

Does anyone know where this cloned disease resistant angus bull is? What is he doing? What is going on with him? Has anyone.....HEY TEXAS!!...seen him?

" COLLEGE STATION, Texas (April 27) - A team of French and American researchers has successfully cloned a horse, Texas A&M University officials announced Wednesday. The foal was named Paris Texas......
..........The first cloned cat was born at the school Dec. 22, 2001. Since then, the university has cloned several litters of pigs, a Boer goat, a disease-resistant Angus bull, the first Brahma bull and a deer."

Just heard a part of that announcement today, didn't catch it all. Wasn't it Texas, where he was cloned along with the horse? Are these animals subject to the early (accelerated) aging, as were the British models?
