Scottish sheep, a ewe cloned at the Roslyn Institute near Edinburgh, the world's first successful living, healthy example of a cloned mammal. The event was announced to the world media in February 1997. She lived about half the average life span of a sheep before she was put down on February 14, 2003 in Midlothian, Scotland. She had a progressive lung disease and zoological authorities said her death had nothing to do with her being a clone. She had been bred twice, most recently giving birth to three lambs in 1999.
