  8. Model Example of Newspaper Article Beware of Brewing Bat Brains for Breakfast By Jane Doe-World Staff Editor A woman gets added jolt after finding a culprit in a coffee machine. It wasn’t just the caffeine that gave an Iowa woman an extra jolt after the victim had her morning coffee. It was also the casualty of finding a bat entombed in the filter. The Iowa Department of Public Health says the woman was outraged and reported a bat in her house on the 5th of January but soon calmed down about the situation. She turned on her automatic coffee maker before bedtime and drank her coffee the next morning. She discovered the bat in the filter when she went to clean it that night. Somehow the bat found its way inside the machine and to its own death. The woman has undergone treatment for possible rabies. Health officials say that the bat remains were sent to a lab for further testing, but its brain was too cooked from the hot water to determine whether it had gone insane.
