OSPCA threatened Marineland’s ‘extinction’: Lawsuit

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Marineland’s $21-million lawsuit against the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (OSPCA) is the result of “injuries and damages, including special damages” suffered as a result of the animal welfare organization’s animal cruelty charges laid against the park.

In a statement of claim obtained by Niagara Falls Review this week, Marineland accuses the OSPCA of “malice” towards the park, bowing to pressure from the “animal activist community” to lay animal cruelty charges in January and last November in order to please its donors.

“In addition, through its press releases and public statements … the OSPCA has threatened Marineland with effective extinction,” says the 34-page statement of claim, filed on Oct. 24 in St. Catharines.

Rescue seal at Aquarium of Niagara gets new name, fresh start

From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo:

He’s feisty, playful, and a bit of flirt.

You’d never guess by looking at 1-year-old Stryker that the Harbor Seal pup almost lost his life.

He was hit by a boat in New Jersey earlier this year and needed one of his back flippers amputated.

Because he’s no longer able to survive on his own in the wild, he was brought to the Aquarium of Niagara.

From Blooloop.com:

A new $7m pre-show at Cave of the Winds is one of a series of new public and privately funded attractions coming to Niagara Falls.

The pre-show facility has a number of displays and a film screen room where a video highlights the history of Niagara Falls, a valuable source of hydroelectric power.

The ceremonial opening of the centre on 30 October drew attention to the scenic location’s importance – from its early beginnings to the day when architect Frederick Law Olmstead voiced concerns over the river’s waning flow, and founded the Free Niagara movement.

The movement believed that the natural beauty of the Falls needed protection from commercial interests and exploitation, and remain free to the public.
