Pittsburgh Scientists Create Zombie Dogs?
Scientists in Pittsburgh's Safar Centre for Resuscitation Research have apparently reanimated dead dogs several hours after removing all of their blood and replacing it with a cold saline solution. (No, this isn't a hoax story.) The purpose of the research is to develop a better way to cryogenically freeze people.
The Pittsburgh group plans research to begin on humans within a year. Yes, you guessed it--just in time for Anthrocon 2007.
