Tant mieux si un jour un beluga un dauphin ou un orque pouvait parler il porrait hurler les souffrances qu ils endurent enfermer dans ces mourroirs que sont les delphinariums . Ils parleraii pour ces freres et soeurs de leur manque de liberte et surment aussi que leur famille leur manque.

I hate the thought of those animals living in a pool. Perhaps the whale is the one who wants out and he figured he'd ask in a way humans understand.

Horrible to keep wild animals shut up. No wonder the animal learned how to sound like a human....lots of free time.
