I realize there are noble, life-saving potential applications, but excuse me while I vomit at the image of a sheep with human inner organs.

Could be worse, though.  At least it’s not a pig.

Now scientists create a sheep that’s 15% human | the Daily Mail

Scientists have created the world’s first human-sheep chimera – which has the body of a sheep and half-human organs.
The sheep have 15 per cent human cells and 85 per cent animal cells – and their evolution brings the prospect of animal organs being transplanted into humans one step closer.

    Actually a human/pig chimera would be a far better bet for successful organ harvesting.

    O Brave New World! Actually, they have been using pig cells to treat diabetes for many years. And pig valves in heart vavle replacement operations.
    So Baaaaaaaaaa
    Ya Haqq!
