ISFAHAN, Iran – Iranian scientists have cloned a goat and plan future experiments they hope will lead to a treatment for stroke patients, the leader of the research said Wednesday. The female goat, named Hana, was born early Wednesday in the city of Isfahan in central Iran, said Dr. Mohammed Hossein Nasr e Isfahani, head of the Royan Research Institute.

"With the birth of Hana, Iran is among five countries in the world cloning a baby goat," said Isfahani, an embryologist.

In 2006 Iran became the first country in the Middle East to announce it had cloned a sheep. Two and a half years later, that animal is healthy, the institute said.

Does the cloned goat wear a burkha too? That would be the penultimate step to cloning Iranian baby machines.

“Iranian scientists have cloned a goat”

And he is currently serving as their President, which explains the smell.

“Iranian scientists have cloned a goat....”

If they want to have sex with goats, that’s their business, but they shouldn’t make a big deal of it.
