Below is a statement from the Ontario SPCA regarding the Crown’s decisions
in the Marineland case.

The Ontario SPCA conducted a thorough investigation in this case. The
decision to drop all the charges was one made by the Crown, stating 3 were
withdrawn because it was not in the public interest and the balance were
dropped as there was not a good prospect of a conviction.  The Ontario SPCA
was not aware of this decision until after the court proceeding. We are
extremely disappointed in this outcome and feel that this matter is of
public interest as all animals rely on humans for appropriate care for their
general welfare and the public demands this.

If you wish to voice your concerns to the Crown, you can contact the
Ministry of Attorney General by calling 1-800-518-7901 or emailing,<>.

The Ontario SPCA remains committed to the protection of animals.  If you
have concerns for the welfare of the animals at Marineland, we encourage you
to contact 310-SPCA to report the new information.
