The Life saver Colleen Layton Owner of a So CALLED Sanctuary (FRISKYS) Seems to have made the news. But I am sure you good people only heard her about what a life saver she is and needs your money. Well it seems that Miss Layton made the Baltimore Sun news back in 1995.When Animal Control and Department of Natural Resources Police went to her place and took raccoons that she was breading from her and put them down. She has claimed to all her supporters that she is a Wildlife Sanctuary. Well not according to DNA Police. All the wildlife were her pets and her HOBBY but she still put out newsletters asking the public to support her hobby.If anyone is interested in the truth about this ,I will send a copy of the Baltimore Sun to Monkey Matters for all to view.
I have been reading about the Ritterspach's and their monkey that was taken by Animal Control and how Colleen Layton said they were irresponsible primate owners and packs her newsletters full of newspaper articles about how they took Jamie into the public and endangered the public. She feels they should never get Jamie back. Well,have your heard the saying :PEOPLE THAT LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES, SHOULD'NT THROW STONES?
It seems that Miss Layton has had her own problems with taking monkeys out into the public. Such as the case in Howard County where she took her Pet monkey into a Department Store and the woman sued her for a million dollars. It is public record. It is case #90ca15092, the Department store was sued and Layton. Now if you are the SSA you would want to believe the story Friskys told and wouldn't want to believe that they help support her Hobby.You see if all her supporters took the time to check her out they would find that she is not USDA licensed is not Licensed with the State to be fundraising. If she were then she would have to explain where all those baby monkeys came from. If her supporters found out that their donations went to buy baby monkeys and support her hobby,they would look bad. Let me just say that Miss Layton has been stealing from the public and getting away with it that the money became soooooooooooo good she couldn't stop herself.

Please be sure to read the instructions of care for primates that Colleen Layton has written. She feeds her monkey gizmo PIZZA? And then people wonder why some monkeys are diabetic. Just the sugar in the sauce alone is not good for Primates. Why aren't they on a strict diet of monkey chow that all Primates are on when living in good sanctuaries and Zoos? Interesting.
