I wonder why too. Spider DNA was introduced to goats some 20 or so years ago in hopes of harvesting spider silk in greater amounts from goat milk. Spider silk is so many times stronger and has a higher tensile strength than steel or kevlar. As far as I know that was a success and the applications for use by the military in high strength, yet light weight products is the end goal. Those goats weren't going anywhere near the food chain though.
