The BBC documentary “The Girl Who Talked to Dolphins” will be shown on BBC4 Tuesday, June 17.
Margaret Howe Lovatt was stationed on the U.S. Virgin Islands as part of a NASA experiment to teach the intelligent mammals how to communicate.
She revealed in the upcoming BBC documentary that it was in 1963 when a house was flooded to turn it into a dolphinarium, allowing researchers to study the animals at close quarters.
One of them, nicknamed Peter, was a sexually maturing adolescent.
“Peter liked to be … with me. He would rub himself on my knee, my foot or my hand and I allowed that,” she said.
“I wasn’t uncomfortable — as long as it wasn’t too rough. It was just easier to incorporate that and let it happen, it was very precious and very gentle, Peter was right there, he knew that I was right there.”
This story does not end well for Peter. Read more and watch the video at The New York Post Here
