Well, reanimation of a dog clinically dead for three hours has just happened. Seems that it has something to do with a very cold saline solution, electricity, and annoying animal rights activists.
Now, before I get jumped on for being a horrible person for supporting this, they apparently did comply with appropriate standards. Secondarily, this may allow human doctors, EMT's, and the like to actually save human lives by keeping them in suspended animation until they can get them into an ER.

Hmm reanimate a large carnivore. What possible good could come from this?
