‘No issues of concern’ after Marineland inspection
From the Niagara Falls Review:
Facing 11 counts of animal cruelty from the OSPCA (Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), Marineland is touting the results of a recent inspection by its own Animal Care Committee.
Conducted by former Seaworld vice president Lanny Cornell, the report found the animals at the Niagara Falls attraction to be “healthy, behaving normally, well fed and well taken care of,” according to Marineland’s marketing department.
The park says Cornell considered “all the issues identified by the OSPCA and issues raised by radical animal rights activists” during the inspection. His entire report can be found on Marineland’s website.
Following that inspection, the park says the OSPCA conducted a two-day inspection “of every animal, the facilities and all records at Marineland” on Feb. 21 and 22. It found “no issues of concern,” and laid no charges.
