Koshik, a talking elephant?

It seems like scentists from all around the globe are confirming that Koshik, a poor elephant imprisoned in the Everland Zoo in South Korea, can imitate human voice using his trunk.
Have a look:
I found the whole story to be quite sad.
Elephant are social animals, they should live together in large groups. As poor Koshik is forced to live in a zoo, maybe he started to consider his trainer as part of the family and is trying to develop a social relationship.
Once again, I think that all zoos should be closed immediately. The poor Koshik should be put in contact with other elephants and develop their own communication code, as every animal living in groups.
