Don't feed those animals. That is message to Chesterfield residents.

According to a city ordinance passed this month, residents caught feeding animals will serve up to three months in jail. The ordinance outlaws feeding certain types of animals inside city limits. The ordinance previously only forbade residents from feeding deer and Canada Geese, but people had recently been complaining to the council about raccoons being fed.

Punishment for violating the ordinance is subject to a $500 fine and jail time.

ST LOUIS (AP) - Serial killer Joseph Paul Franklin is getting support ahead of his scheduled execution from an unlikely source: Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt, who was paralyzed by a bullet apparently fired by Franklin 35 years ago.

Franklin is set for execution Nov. 20 in Missouri for killing a man in 1977, but he's claimed responsibility for killing as many as 21 people nationwide. He admitted to shooting Flynt in 1978 but was never charged.

The American Civil Liberties Union filed the motion on Flynt's behalf on Saturday, arguing that Missouri's execution process is too secretive. The motion seeks to unseal court records related to the process.

Franklin has been convicted in five murders. He was given the death penalty for killing Gerald Gordon outside a St. Louis-area synagogue in 1977.

NEW MADRID, Mo. (AP) - Charges are expected soon against a woman accused of stealing a Missouri State Highway Patrol car and ramming it into two sheriff's department cars.

The Sikeston Standard Democrat reports that New Madrid County officers were called Nov. 5 to a truck stop on a report that a woman was acting strangely. Officers determined the 24-year-old woman did nothing wrong.

A short time later, officers found the same woman in a vehicle parked on an overpass. She was handcuffed and placed in a Highway Patrol car.

Sheriff Terry Stevens says the woman got out of the handcuffs and stole the patrol car. She rammed a deputy's car as she drove away and another during the chase. The pursuit ended when the patrol car became stuck in a field.
