Marineland disputes claim by activist that walrus is in ill health
From Niagara This Week:
Phil Demers was disheartened when he was sent a video of Zeus, one of Marineland’s walruses last week.
“He’s lost hundreds of pounds,” Demers said. “He should weigh up to 3,000 pounds. I’d be shocked if he weighed 1,000.”
In the video in question, Zeus can be seen in what has become a rare appearance at the park. The 13-year-old walrus moves slowly for a few moments before settling near the edge of the water in the park’s show theatre…
Marineland, meanwhile, said the concerns for Zeus’ health were unfounded and that like all of the park’s animals, it receives proper veterinary care.
