Day of action sparks protest at Marineland
From Niagara This Week:
It was a mostly soggy Saturday morning and afternoon for the dozens of activists who stood just outside the Marineland property, seeking honks of support for their efforts to raise awareness for captive ocean animals.
Lining up along Marineland Drive, the protestors held up a variety of large, handmade signs with provocative statements to catch the attention of passing motorists, as well as those heading into the amusement, which recently opened for the season.
While many of those there were local, more than a few came from outside Niagara’s borders.
Toronto’s Angela Salewsky said people need to realize how badly the animals are treated, despite what marine park owners say about providing them with 24-hour veterinarian care and an ample food supply.
