Because scientists have neither the time nor the funds for such a task, if it were a solid order, with good financial support, then genetic engineers and ordinary breeders could do it, but there is no such order yet.

This is a science-intensive project. Therefore, we are talking simply about the psychology of the scientific community, about the ambitions of scientists. It is extremely uncharacteristic for scientists to attract high technologies, to organize quite expensive in terms of funding (resource-intensive, in particular) and rather long-term project with toys at the end. Scientists don't think so at all. Their ambitions are much larger, the output should be, if not something so "grandiose for all time", then at least a prestigious scientific award.

And from the point of view of investors, to invest serious funds in a long-term scientific project, which was not initiated by the scientists themselves - money down the drain.

Although - yes. Even when I watched this film about children of spies, I also immediately thought about it. What a great business - and what a real one - today.

Because:

  • at the current level of development of genetics it is easier to do it by selection
  • it is difficult to do by breeding with species that are poorly domesticated
  • bears and large cats are poorly domesticated.
