[Reporter : ] More than a decade has passed since Dolly‚ the cloned British sheep made headlines.
Cloning technology is put to good use today in China.
The result of the incorporation of this technology in goat herding is better wool and less grazing.
Bou Shorgan‚ a professor of reproductive biology led his team from the Laboratory of Mammal Reproduction and Biotechnology of Inner Mongolia University to successfully clone goats for commercial purposes.
He grew up watching more and more farmers simply increasing the number of their livestock to meet the growing global demand for cashmere.
Farmers easily choose quantity over quality while pursuing greater profit and the resulting problems from excessive goat herding are empty grasslands and the creation of massive sandstorms.
The professor's cloned goat which can produce almost double the amount of cashmere than an ordinary goat may just be the perfect solution to sustaining the farmers' livelihood while satisfying consumer demands.
Although cloning is still a huge subject of debate‚ Professor Shorgan stands firmly by his belief that copying cells or genes within the same breeds‚ species or kind is not the same as newly creating or changing them.
Thanks to the passage of a new federal law signed by Bolivian President Evo Morales‚ animals in circuses are being rescued.
According to Jan Creamer‚ the chief executive of Animal Defenders International or ADI‚ most circus owners do not properly care for the jungle cats.
The cages used for the animals when they were little are continually used even after they've grown much larger‚ resulting in very cramped and abusive living conditions.
The lions that have been rescued no longer perform and are cared for by veterinarians.
The transition has been rough‚ but the big cats are adjusting to their new situation.
So far‚ 17 out of 24 lions owned by circuses throughout the nation have been rescued.
The rescued lions will be sent to a lion reserve in California‚ and the steep cost for the transportation of these animals are being covered by the generous donations of Bob Barker‚ the former host of "The Price is Right."
Bitter cold winter weather is not good news at all for the less fortunate of Latvia.
And to help provide some warmth to those in need‚ a group of people organized a special project.
For 10 days‚ visitors to a shopping center in Riga were invited to join in the efforts to create what might be the country's largest scarf.
By November 21st‚ a scarf made using the national colors measured 32 point 5 meters.
The organizers of the event plans to divide the scarf into smaller pieces to sell them in a Christmas market and then donate the money to free soup kitchens.
Of course‚ if some generous soul is prepared to spend enough money to buy the whole scarf‚ it will be sold in one piece.
