Fight Against Maturity

Has your coffee been tasting odd lately?

Our Strange World

It wasn’t just the caffeine that gave an eastern Iowa woman an extra jolt when she had her morning cup of coffee. It was the bat she found in the coffee filter.

Officials with the Iowa Department of Public Health said the woman reported seeing a bat in her house but wasn’t overly worried about it…she turned on her automatic coffee maker before she went to bed and had her coffee the next morning. [And] discovered the bat in the filter in the coffee maker when she went to clean it out that night.

Officials said the woman, who wasn’t identified, underwent treatment for rabies.

…the bat was sent to a state lab for testing but its brain was too cooked by the heat of the brewing water to determine if it had rabies.
