The Ontario SPCA is paying a visit to maineland.
The agency will conduct an on-site inspection with sea mammal experts after eight former employees reported staffing shortages this week and animal suffering caused by recurring water problems.
There is currently no government regulation in Canada or the province regarding marine mammal parks or any animal park.
However, the OSPCA enforces provincial rules against animal cruelty and has the power to lay charges. Maximum penalties are two years in jail and a fine of $60,000.
Marineland's owner John Holer has denied there are problems with water quality. He also maintains there is more than sufficient staff to look after the animals.
