Woolly mammoth could walk Earth again as Russians agree to ship Siberian remains to Korean cloning scientist

* Controversial scientist created world's first cloned dog
* Remains found in Siberia last year to be used
* Research 'could begin this year'

A woolly mammoth preserved in permafrost in Siberia could walk the Earth again after 10,000 years, after Russian academics signed a deal with a controversial Korean scientist to clone the animal.

Hwang Woo-Suk – who created the world’s first cloned dog, Snuppy, in 2005 – will implant the nucleus from a mammoth cell into an elephant egg to create a mammoth embryo.

The embryo will then be implanted into an elephant’s womb. The Koreans say research could begin this year.
