Sanctuary owner not monkeying around in suit against volunteer

Dana Savorelli, owner of the sanctuary often known as Monkey Island, is seeking monetary and punitive damages from defendant Catherine Montes, who once served as a sanctuary volunteer and whom Savorelli alleges seized three monkeys from the property in 2007. On Tuesday, he brought a 3-month-old white-headed female gibbon ape to court as a witness in the lawsuit.
