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.

SALEM, Mo. (AP) - The owners of a yellow Labrador retriever facing euthanasia ordered by an eastern Missouri town's mayor for allegedly chomping on a 7-year-old girl say experts about dog bites conclude the pooch didn't do it.

 

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/13DJS5f ) reports that Phineas' fate has developed into a legal struggle that has delayed the dog's sentence, which was imposed by Salem's mayor in July of last year after the girl was bitten.

   Mayor Gary Brown concluded the dog needed to be put down, based on a police report and photos of the wound.

   But two dog-bite experts say in court filings that Phineas wasn't the culprit. They say the wound is too small, and that the dental pattern isn't consistent with Phineas' teeth.

 

   Salem is 125 miles south of St. Louis.

GRAFTON, Ill. (AP) - A Mississippi River ferry service linking southwestern Illinois' Jersey County to Missouri's St. Charles County is about to be back in business after being shut down for more than two years.

 

   The (Alton) Telegraph (http://bit.ly/1146MGq ) reports that the Grafton ferry will resume next Friday, thanks to dredging efforts that cleared out river silt that kept the service from operating.

 

   Owned by the 670-resident city of Grafton northeast of St. Louis, the ferry had served as a key shuttle for motorists trying to cross the confluence of the Mississippi and Illinois rivers.

 

   The ferry will operate from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
