Ontario’s animal welfare agency is expected to announce new animal cruelty charges against Marineland this afternoon.

A spokeswoman for the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says they have laid six additional charges of animal cruelty against the tourist attraction in Niagara Falls, Ont.

Alison Cross says details of the new charges will be announced at a 2:30 p.m. news conference.

Marineland was charged with five counts of animal cruelty in late November that related to the treatment of peacocks, guinea hens and black bears.

The OSPCA has said those charges stemmed from a complaint of alleged animal cruelty, but Marineland denied the allegations, saying they came from an employee who was fired for poor performance and inappropriate behaviour.

The company was not immediately available for comment on the latest charges but has previously said it intends to defend itself in court.

If kids have fun there then why not. Same as the bird sanctuary in Niagara Falls, or the Toronto Zoo.

All these animals are prisoners just like the pets in peoples homes. No one is getting charged for cutting the balls off their cats and dogs, or declawing them since it's convenient.

Having been knocked down and stepped on by those deer as a smaller fella, no. We really do not. Other stories are talking about it being the deer who are abused in the recent charges.

I'd love to so on a safari, or like African Lion Safari. The animals get to roam around and wait until some tourist comes out for a selfie so they can pounce. Whales don't belong in a little fish tank. Neither do big animals. Land tank I mean.
