Priscilla Feral's website takes credit for all of the many wonderful things that were done during the recievership, and her constant want of donations should cause speculation for any of those who visit her site.

It's not cool to see an animal as property even if you feel it is right or even if legal says so. Those primates gonig back to you is just a mother sending kids she adopted back to a unsatisfactory foster care. If you care about these animals you would think about their happiness first before your budget. On the other hand, where they are now wants them so bad I would think they can pay an equal amount of your loss. What comes down to it is if there this legal dispute makes your company look selfish to their needs, your going to lose business anyway. Who wants to go to a facility that can't take care of their animals the first time. Hope you make the right decision and make these animals and your support, the people, happy.
