This is so absolutely sad. There are no words to convey the horrific things that those poor Walrus's are having to endure in their OWN habitat. Where can they go to escape??? God did not create HIs ocean's for mess like this to go on. He made the Walruses to be able to live in CLEAN and UNPOLLUTED WATER and man has just messed up what God meant for good.
