Went to a glacier and got mammoth tissue to use in the attempt. The money for the effort came from a private donation from SK Group and was earmarked for “peripheral activities related to the research.” They tried cloning a tiger too according to court testimony.

Oh, in case you were wondering? Both attempts failed.
