Three kittens are getting veterinary help after they were left in a dumpster in downtown St. Louis and tormented by a hawk.
A Good Samaritan was walking down the street and heard the cats meows. When he found the cats, a circling hawk had already snatched of the kittens. The Samaritan took the remaining three cats to the Animal House for care. It is not clear who dumped the kittens into the dumpster.
Animal House is a no kill shelter who plans to care for the kittens until they can be put up for adoption.
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A Southeast Missouri State University building will remain closed through mid-August after a rooftop fire.
The university made the announcement Thursday after insurers and engineers assessed the damage that Monday's fire caused to Robert A. Dempster Hall. The building houses business programs and some administrative offices.
The university said in a news release that portions of the building sustained roof, water and smoke damage. Vice president for finance and administration, Kathy Mangels, says the first priority is to get classrooms ready for the fall semester.
During the closure, students and staff have been moved to alternative locations.
Charges are filed against a St. Louis County woman for allegedly stabbing her husband to death.
Police say they were called to the couple's home around 1 AM Thursday for an apparent homicide. That is where they found 76-year-old Ivan Mullenix Sr. dead from an apparent stabbing. Officers also found 69-year-old Mary Mullenix in the house and she was taking into custody.
Town and Country Police say they were called to same house earlier for a domestic disturbance.
Mary Mullenix is held on a half-million dollar bond.
