Calgary, AB — Immediate Release
On March 16, 2016, charges were laid under the Animal Protection Act of Alberta against Riverfront Aquariums, Manager Wayne Woo and Owner Michael Chow.
The charges stem from a mass seizure of 333 animals from the business on December 2, 2015.
Riverfront Aquariums and former owner Wayne Woo also face three separate sets of charges from previous offenses in 2014 and 2015.
First appearance is scheduled for May 24, 2016.
Brad Nichols, Senior Manager, Animal Cruelty Investigations said, “What is most concerning in this case is the blatant disregard for the basic welfare of the animals in the care of this business.”
