    They've been doing this sort of thing for almost 40 years with various forms of sea life, especially aquatic mammals. George C. Scott did a bad movie based on an equally bad novel, The Day of the Dolphin, back in the 1970s that used the same concept. (Albeit with talking dolphins and a total misunderstanding of the real program.)

    Regards,

    Wouldn't announcing that give the enemy a chance to look for the sea lions and other animals they use? It's still cool that they use them though. It shows that animals aren't as dumb as some people think. The story kind of reminds me of this seal named Hoover that lived at the New England Aquarium in the early '80s. Hoover could actually talk. A guy used to walk by and see Hoover every day for like 8 years I believe, and taught Hoover to say a few things. I don't remember the details exactly, because I was 6 the last time I saw him.

    I wonder what was the first animal that humans used to complete a task. Dogs for hunting? Birds as messengers?
