Leads Analysis

| 1 Comment

This lead was taken from the article Plague Confirmed in Oregon Man Bitten by Stray Cat written on ABC News:

Health officials have confirmed that an Oregon man has the plague after he was bitten while trying to take a dead rodent from the mouth of a stray cat.

This is an example of a general news story lead that is short and goes immediately to the action of the news story. This lead works to give the who (man), the what (confirmed to have the plague), the where (Oregon) and the why (from the bite of a stray cat) of the story without great detail.
