US scientists have cloned a rare breed of pig in an experiment they say shows the copying technology can be made more efficient. The cloned animal, called Princess, was the last female in one of only four bloodlines of Gloucestershire Old Spots in North America. Several attempts at getting offspring from Princess through natural breeding and artificial insemination had failed, NewScientist.com reports. Cloning produced three piglets, born via a surrogate mother, after just one embryo implantation round.
