A new baby beluga whale has been born at the Vancouver Aquarium. All the people involved are thrilled. The whale is a little small but healthy so far. This is hailed as a wonderful event. They boast it will do better than in the wild.
But isn't it sort of like a human child born at home with the prospect of being confined to that bedroom for the rest of it's life?
Given the option I bet the whale would choose the wild.
