Now why the heck would they do such a thing?

That is the a very good question. I heard this on the news and one reporter was joking maybe it to count the sheep easier at night. It is really freaky to me and made me wonder what else is being done to our food.

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.

Wow those are cool - I'd love to get one as a pet ....kidding obviously.
Just because you 'can' do something - doesn't mean you should...

It's not like they needed to prove a technique--as has already been pointed out, the technique has already been demonstrated to work. Just seems really pointless to make glow-in-the-dark sheep.
