Neighbors and operators of a Woodstock animal sanctuary are appealing decisions by the Howard County Board of Appeals permitting the shelter to treat wildlife, but not exotic animals. Last year, the board ruled that Frisky's Wildlife and Primate Sanctuary could continue to rehabilitate animals, but county animal control - not the board - has the authority to decide when and if the group's monkeys would be removed. David A. Carney, attorney for neighbors with safety concerns, said he submitted the appeal after the board denied motions to reconsider the case based on new county zoning regulations.

Is anyone in Anne Arundel County -- or anywhere -- missing a goat? A female in very poor condition that's being called Tuscany was found wandering near Linthicum on Thursday and county officials are trying to find out who she belongs to and how she got there. Animal Control responded to a call on Friday after an 11-year-old found Tuscany on River Road in northern Linthicum. The goat had a chain weighing more than 23 pounds hanging from her neck. Though the chain wasn't tight, it was so heavy that it had become embedded in the goat's neck.

A bill that would have guaranteed the continued existence of Frisky's Wildlife and Primate Sanctuary in western Howard County was killed on an ironic 3-2 vote by the County Council last night. The deciding "no" vote was cast by newly appointed member Charles C. Feaga, a western county Republican who replaced the bill's sponsor, Allan H. Kittleman, who left the council in October to take his late father's seat in the state Senate. "We felt very differently on it," Feaga said, adding that Kittleman had lobbied him late yesterday to support a last-ditch compromise amendment supported by two Democrats, council Chairman Guy Guzzone, who represents North Laurel-Savage, and east Columbia's David A. Rakes.
