Marineland and OSPCA continue sparring
From the Niagara Falls Review:
It didn’t take long for Marineland and the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) to renew hostilities.
A week after 11 charges of animal cruelty filed by OSPCA against the park were dropped in a Niagara Falls courtroom, the two sides were once again chirping at each other following a surprise inspection of Marineland on Wednesday.
In dueling statements, Marineland said the inspection found “no signs of abuse, distress, mistreatment or neglect” among its animals, while the OSPCA says inspectors found “11 items requiring action” involving veterinarians.
Neither side was budging Friday, referring media requests for comment to their own press releases.
