Ontario government bans acquisition and breeding of orcas

A huge boost was given to the anti captivity movement this week when the government of Ontario, Canada brought in immediate legislation banning the acquisition and breeding of orcas (killer whales) in the province.

In a statement, an official spokesperson expressed the government’s commitment to making sure marine mammals, and all animals in Ontario, are protected and receive the best possible treatment and care.

Earlier in the year, Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey also said it would phase out elephants in its traveling circus. This latest news from Canada reflects a growing worldwide change in attitudes towards keeping whales and dolphins in captivity.
