From the Toronto Star:
Marineland served a $1.25 million lawsuit against former trainer Christine Santos on Thursday for telling the Star a killer whale was sporadically bleeding from its tail.
The suit says whale’s cuts were minor and that Santos knew that.
“Ms. Santos’ communication of the (allegations) to the Star was calculated to disparage Marineland in its business,” said the 20-page statement of claim filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice in St. Catharines.
