    Anti-captivity ad pulled from Niagara Falls bus

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    A U.S.-based animal advocacy group is questioning why an ad it placed on a Niagara Transit bus was removed last month.

    Alex Lewis-Dorer, president of the anti-captivity group Fins and Fluke, said the ad was supposed to be displayed for the entire month of July, but was taken off the bus after three weeks.

    The ad, with images of captive dolphins, beluga whales and orcas, stated “50 years ago corporations said smoking was safe.” A second caption read: “Science is speaking again on captivity. Don’t let it take another 50 years to listen.”

    Mindful of a potential lawsuit, Lewis-Dorer said none of the photos were taken at Marineland in Niagara Falls.
