From Niagara This Week:
Marineland was charged Monday with six counts of animal cruelty, but the company dismissed the allegations, accusing Ontario’s animal welfare agency of acting on behalf of “a band of discredited activists.”
The latest charges, filed by the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, relate to a number of land animals kept at the tourist attraction in Niagara Falls, Ont.
They include one count each of permitting elk, red deer and fallow deer to be in distress, and one count each of failing to provide the standards of care for those animals.
