Cloning pioneer Dolly the sheep put to death

Updated:

LONDON (AP) _ Dolly the sheep, the world's first mammal cloned from an adult, was euthanized after being diagnosed with progressive lung disease, the Roslin Institute said Friday.

The decision was taken to end the life of 6-year-old Dolly after a veterinary examination confirmed the lung disease, a statement from the institute said.

Dolly was born in 1996, and she created an international sensation when the Scottish research institute announced its achievement on Feb. 23, 1997.
