Reports came in today that a rookie trainer was injured at Marineland. An ambulance was called to the Niagara Falls abusement park early this afternoon. Marineland has made no comment confirming the accident but sources say the trainer was a female and injured while performing a stunt. No word on which animals may have been involved in the show at the time. Marineland trainers routinely perform water work with dolphins and beluga whales in the stadium pool. Many of the abusive routines include standing on top of Belugas while pushing off and riding belugas and dolphins around the tank.
There have been many accidents at Marineland over the years while conducting circus like acts with the animals. Many of these incidents go unreported to the media or the media chooses not to write about them.
