    From Sun News:

    Marineland has filed its second lawsuit in less than a month.

    This time the marine-animal theme park is taking aim at Marineland Animal Defense founder Dylan Powell.

    The statement of claim was filed at the St. Catharines courthouse Friday afternoon.

    It asks for a permanent restraint from Powell and his company from trespassing on Marineland’s property, the Niagara Falls Animal Medical Centre’s property, Marineland owner John Holer’s property, Marineland veterinarian June Mergl’s property and any residence or private property owned by a Marineland employee.

    It also says Powell can’t protest within 500 metres of any of those properties.

    In addition, Powell is being sued for $1.5 million for general damages.

    Critics question Marineland probe

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Animal-rights activists are questioning what could and could not have been investigated at Marineland by one of the agencies that oversees the care of animals in captivity.

    Critics, who weighed in on social media sites, have been left scratching their heads after an official with the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals said animals documented to be under the care of a veterinarian were exempt from an August investigation of the Niagara Falls theme park.

    The OSPCA is bound by provincial legislation stating the agency has no authority to investigate how a veterinarian is caring for an animal.
