Ontario Bans Orca Captivity

May 29, 2015, www.care2.com | “In a major victory for animals, this week lawmakers in Ontario passed landmark legislation that bans keeping orcas in captivity and will bring improvements to living conditions for other captive marine mammals. Under the new law, the Ontario Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, the acquisition and breeding of orcas is banned effective immediately, leaving violators facing potential fines of up to $60,000 and the possibility of two years in prison.”
