When Pigs fly....When Elephants talk

Amusement park boasts talking elephant

A 16-year-old elephant living at Everland, South Korea?s largest amusement park, has begun talking.

Kim Jong-gap, 39, a breeder at Everland?s zoo, had a strange experience two years ago. He heard a human voice coming from the elephant enclosure. Kim at first thought he was mistaken. But the sound continued, too vivid to not be real. When he approached the cage, to his astonishment he found that the voice was coming from an elephant named Kosik.

I saw and heard the item on tv.

It sounded like the elephant was repeating the same sound that the trainer was making.

I'm not saying the elephant understood what the "sounds/words" meant.

Is that what you dispute?
