Protests target Marineland

Organizers of a protest at Marineland that got out of hand yesterday say they'll be back when the popular tourist attraction re-opens next year.

About 150 protesters crashed the gate at Marineland to back their demands to end the captivity of marine mammals at the park.

Police were able to diffuse the situation and there were no arrests.

Protest organizers say they'll continue their fight to shut down Marineland.

Marineland hasn't commented on the protest, but has insisted in the past that it provides excellent care to all of its marine mammals.
