Summary: ''I don't know if people will ever be able to talk to animals the way Doctor Doolittle could, or whether animals will be able to talk back. Maybe science will have something to say about that. But I do know people can learn to ''talk'' to animals, and to hear what animals have to say, better than they do now.
