It would seem that there was an agreement between the two regarding a breeding programme. Seaworld now wants the Orca back and Marineland aren't playing ball.

From David L.Seaworld has already taken this to a Canadian court and the judge favored Seaworld from one article i read. If Marineland is really not taking care of it like Seaworld claims they need to get it back immediately. Marineland is NOT accredited by the AZA according to AZA's website.
