It Is Better To Leave The Dolphins In The Oceans Where They Belong.

Animals have brains but no understanding of knowledge, Humans have knowledge but no brains, if they (Humans) did have brains they would not do all the horrible things that they do!!!

They are a whole lot more generous to humans than we are to them.

When I see, one more time, how friendly, kinf, generous they are with human beings, it makes me feel ashamed of the way they are dealt with by people.
