A team of South Korean researchers, led by Hwang Woo-suk, claim they have successfully cloned coyotes.

Hwang, once celebrated as a national hero, was convicted of fraud and embezzling state funds in 2009.

He shook the scientific community after two of his journal papers were found to be based on fabricated data.

The scientist claims his team has succeeded in cloning eight coyotes: "We injected a coyote's somatic cell into a dog's egg and produced a cloned embryo."

Hwang's team remains credited for creating the first cloned dog, Snuppy, in 2005.
