It is difficult to agree however it is analogous to a brilliant University
Molecular Biologist experimenting on a biological virus but through
inadequate precautions results in a large number of dogs in North America
becoming infected. The released virus could be completely harmless - but
I don't think this country would want or should allow this act to go
completely unpunished.
