Playing Got

This can only end badly:

Scientists in Spain said Wednesday that they had cloned a fighting bull for the first time. Vicente Torrent, a specialist in veterinary genetics, said the newborn calf, named Got, is an exact replica of a muscular, horned specimen of the type that matadors face in bullrings. The animal, which was born on Tuesday, already weighs 53 pounds. Mr. Torrent says his team hoped that Got would exhibit the same fierce traits that made his genetic predecessor, a bull named Vasito, a valuable specimen.

For the sake of mankind,we hope they're also trying to clone José Tomás. Fortunately, he's given them a lot of blood samples to work with.
