The St. Louis Zoo is welcoming some new, slithery residents.

Nine ocellate mountain vipers were born at the zoo August 16th. The vipers were thought to be extinct until they were rediscovered in Turkey in 1983. The St. Louis Zoo is only one of three zoos around the country that care for the viper.

The zoo is working with several organizations to ensure the survival of the highly endangered species.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is raising concerns about legislation attempting to nullify some federal gun-control laws.

Koster sent a letter Tuesday to lawmakers warning that the bill contains "flawed public policy."

The Republican-led Legislature is to meet Sept. 11 to consider overriding Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon's veto of the legislation.

Koster, a Democrat, says a federal judge likely would strike down provisions attempting to nullify some federal gun laws and making it a crime for federal agents to enforce them. But Koster says other parts of the measure that could be upheld are troubling.

He says the bill could restrict local police from working cooperatively with federal agents and could allow criminals to sue police who refer gun violations to federal prosecutors.
