She Had a Bat Day
You think you had a bad day? Try finding out that you've been drinking bat tea all day. A woman went to clean out her tea cup and discovered a drowned bat in the cup. Apparently she'd been sipping bat tea all day. Thankfully, the bat was tested and did not have rabies.
The brown bat, about the size of two tea bags, was found a few weeks ago by a 60-year-old Woodbury County woman, said Chuck Cipperley, an environmental director for the Siouxland health office in Sioux City.
