Description

Did one man’s friendship with a dolphin go way – way – too far? It’s 1987 and the British seaside town of Amble has seen much better days. So when a wild bottlenose dolphin nicknamed Freddie appears in the harbour, it feels like a miracle. Everyone wants to swim with him. But Freddie chooses one person above all others: Alan Cooper, a dedicated animal rights activist committed to freeing captive dolphins. Then Alan’s friendship with Freddie is turned against him and a devastating accusation spirals out of control.

Superb story; granted the allegations initially got many laughs out of me, but once you realise how it affected Alan, and going through the trial's reinactments - it really paints a picture on animal rights in the UK and how clever dolphins are.

This man was so obviously innocent. Its bizarre that this ever went to trial. It was a foul rumour started by a vile cowardly individual. Terrible waste of tax payers money. The tabloids are truly disgusting. 🤬

How on earth did this person have a career in journalism? This is so poorly presented and written.

I can't help but admit it - I'm absolutely hooked on Freddie Mercury's music! His voice, his stage presence, everything about him just draws you in. https://pr.business/cookie-packaging-pros-brooklyn-new-york Whether it's his iconic performances with Queen or his solo work, Freddie's talent is truly unparalleled. I find myself constantly revisiting his songs, and they never get old. He's a legend that will live on forever! https://cookiepackagingpros.2fl.co/
