The main ethical problem is what would you use as a surrogate mother to bring the clone to term? A secondary problem is we might have difficulty in providing extinct animals with an appropriate microbiome. Another is what about behaviors they would've learned from their parents and/or herd?

Do we even have the genetic material to do it? That's always going to be a concern with attempts to revive a species.
