Scientists from South Korea's Seoul National University (SNU) announced on Wednesday (July 27) that they have created a genetically-modified dog that glows in the dark. The animal was bred to aid research into cures for illnesses like Alzhiemer's disease. The team has named the genetically modified female beagle 'Tegon' and says that it glows under ultraviolet light if fed antibiotics. STOMPer Adrian wrote: "Why do people feel the need to manipulate the genes of helpless animals to produce strange mutants like this poor dog? "I hardly think dogs were meant to glow under any light. "Yes, it may appear superficially normal, but who knows if it will grow up normal? "Maybe it's for a good cause, but I can't help but feel that they are tampering with something that was not meant to be messed around with. "Who knows what they will do next?"
