Elephants are really smart.
They should try and actually see if they can talk with this animal.
If ideas can be communicated back and forth with another species it would be a scientific first.

Re: An Elephant That Speaks Korean
An Asian elephant named Koshik can imitate human speech, speaking words in Korean that can be readily understood by those who know the language. The elephant accomplishes this in a most unusual way: he vocalizes with his trunk in his mouth

The elephant's vocabulary consists of exactly five words, researchers report on November 1 in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication. Those include "annyong" ("hello"), "anja" ("sit down"), "aniya" ("no"), "nuo" ("lie down"), and "choah" ("good"). Ultimately, Koshik's language skills may provide important insights into the biology and evolution of complex vocal learning, an ability that is critical for human speech and music, the researchers say.

It'd be too hard to comprehend for both parties. The reality of the world for an elephant is nothing like the reality of the world of a human. The thoughts and concepts would be a million miles apart.
Propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach...
