Didn't they already Try this. I seem to recall that the results were.....Disastrous.

Apparently, genetic scientist Teruhiko Wakayama hasn't read Jurassic Park, as he is working to create technology to clone mammoths, sabertooth tigers, giant deers, and steppe lions from frozen genetic material. The DNA in cells subjected to permafrost gets extremely damaged, making it impossible to use for cloning. Until now, that is, because Wakayama and his team of researchers used new technology to successfully clone a healthy mouse from a carcass that was frozen for 16 years at -4 ºF. Now he's saying that a mammoth is possible, opening the door to the realization of the Pleistocene Park, a project that seeks to create a sanctuary with those animals and more in northern Siberia:
There are many technical challenges involved in resurrecting a mammoth, but we have shown that the nuclear transfer method can be used to create healthy clones, even when the animal’s cells have been damaged by permafrost-like conditions.
