“This investigation has been extensive and as a result of the evidence that has been revealed during the investigation process, today the Ontario SPCA served Marineland with an additional six counts of animal cruelty under the Ontario SPCA Act,” OSPCA Deputy Chief Jennifer Bluhm said during a press conference Monday afternoon.
