Canada’s Marineland Sues Former Trainer for Publicizing Orca Neglect
Ironically, Christine Santos' defense could be aided by SeaWorld.

Marineland of Canada has made good on its threat to sue a former trainer for defamation after the trainer, Christine Santos, went to a Toronto newspaper with allegations of neglect and poor living conditions for the park’s sole surviving killer whale, Kiska.

Ironically, Santos’ defense might be supported by allegations against Marineland launched by officials from another marine-mammal entertainment park, SeaWorld.

On December 12, attorneys for Marineland filed a claim in Ontario Superior Court against Santos, alleging she “acted in a premeditated and calculated manner” and “deliberately, flagrantly and callously disregarded” the rights of the company, which “suffered damage to its reputation and goodwill.” Marineland is seeking $1 million (Canadian) in general damages and $250,000 in punitive damages.

(Canada)  Marineland: Environment Ministry Begins Inspection of Mass

Fri Dec 21, 2012 2:10 pm (PST) .



Marineland: Environment Ministry begins inspection of mass animal graves
Published on Thursday December 20, 2012

Provincial Environment Ministry excavation of Marineland’s mass animal graves begins Friday, as part of an overall probe into the company’s disposal practices.

The investigation includes digging test pits “as deep as we deem appropriate,� said ministry spokesperson Kate Jordan. Marineland equipment will be used, but she said: “We’ll determine where the test pits will be dug.�

The ministry launched the probe of the Niagara Falls tourist attraction as a result of questions from the Star about the legalities and potential environmental effects of four mass graves , as described by former Marineland staffers.

Marineland has no permits for disposing animal corpses. Whales, dolphins, seals, walruses as well as bears, bison, deer and other animals are buried at the park, opened in 1961 by owner John Holer.

Marineland spokesperson Ann Marie Rondinelli told the Star in an email Wednesday that the park’s animal remains are “dealt with respectfully and in methods as prescribed by the law.�

Ministry officials said Marineland staff is co-operating.

The ministry will test for groundwater movement and soil conditions. The ministry will also test the nearby Welland River.

Lyndsay Miller, press secretary for Environment Minister Jim Bradley, said that ministry interviewed Marineland officials Thursday and “conducted an inspection, which confirmed the presence of dead animals where they had been reported.�

Former land animal supervisor Jim Hammond told the Star that more than 1,000 animals are buried in two of the graves alone.

The work is being undertaken to make sure that any activities related to the disposal of dead animals at Marineland are not having adverse impacts to the surrounding environment,� said Miller. “The results of this work will be made public.�

It’s unclear when the work will be finished.

“This is the kind of work that doesn’t get completed and done in one day,� said Jordan. “We need to make sure it’s done properly and done right and that could take some time.�
