Interesting Fact - Cloning

A 9/11 hero dog has been cloned.

(Five clones have been made of a search and rescue dog which helped locate people trapped in the rubble of the 9/11 attacks. Trakr, who died in April, won a competition to find the world's most "cloneworthy" dog, organized by California firm BioArts International -- the "Golden Clone Giveaway".

James Symington, a former Canadian police officer, and Trakr arrived at the site of the World Trade Center collapse, commonly referred to as Ground Zero, on September 12, 2001 and were one of the first K9 search and rescue teams on the scene.

After working nearly non-stop for 48 hours, Trakr located the last human survivor found in the rubble of the twin towers.

The five puppies; Trustt, Valor, Prodigy, Solace and Deja Vu -- will go on to follow in Trakr's pawsteps.

Canine clones cost an average of $144,000 dollars each.)
