• Hayti shelter reports suspicious number of animals missing in the area

    President of the Caruthersville Humane Society, Karol Wilcox, frequently audits the books at her shelter and over the past several months she’s noticed a growing trend.

    Wilcox says it’s not just pets being reported to the shelter and local authorities. She frequently monitors lost and found pet pages on Facebook and says the number of small dogs she sees missing , just disappearing and never being seen again has increased incredibly.

  • How ’bout those birds?

    This time of year most of my friends would be quick to reply “Great! Fantastic! Cards at a 3-1 victory on Wednesday winning their first sweep at Dodger Stadium since 2006.”

      No. Those aren’t the birds I was referring to. But hey, Go Cards!
