There have already been many examples off successful cloning, notably Dolly the sheep. It is not a perfect process though, because of complex genetic issues clones have a shorter lifespan than the host animal they are cloned from.
In a nutshell, when we are born our cells can only reproduce so many times without data being lost. Let’s say we start at 0, and have 100 reproductions before we die. If I was cloned after 20 reproductions my clone would start life with 20 of its reproductions already used. This means it will only live for those 80 remaining reproductions instead of a full 100. The same principle holds true with animal cloning.
