Taiwan Breeds Flourescent Green Pig

Does anyone else have a tiny teeny voice in the back of their head, or maybe a SCREAMING one in the front of their head that says "THIS is WRONG!" I mean, I am all for Animal Science, but is it really necessary to turn them colors and inject colored things into their bodies? (don't get me wrong, I dislike PETA and their "ethics" but this is just a little nutty.) Seems to be a bit more than just some harmless cloning.

By injecting fluorescent green protein into embryonic pigs, a research team at the island’s leading National Taiwan University managed to breed three male transgenic pigs, said professor Wu Shinn-Chih of the university’s Institute and Department of Animal Science and Technology.

“There are partially fluorescent green pigs elsewhere, but ours are the only ones in the world that are green from inside out. Even their hearts and internal organs are green,” Wu said on Thursday.

That's fucked up. It looks like he's laughing and smiling, I'm sure that's why they chose this picture...

"But green pigs are happier pigs!"
