Sheepish Researchers

I find it rather odd that scientists would cremate an experimental animal, regardless of state of decomposition.

Mystery shrouds cloned sheep death

"Australia's first cloned sheep, Matilda, has died unexpectedly of unknown causes, scientists said. An autopsy failed to find any reason for the merino ewe's abrupt death last Saturday, Rob Lewis, director of the South Australian Research and Development institute, said. The cremation of the carcass triggered criticism among opponents of cloning, who said that there would be no further opportunity to determine what killed Matilda."
