Writing prompt: Newspaper articles

Newspaper articles are a great place to look for writing ideas. Think of the article as the climax of the story, and ask yourself what led up to the reported event (Uncover the back story).  For instance, in this article, Humane Society pulls dozens of cats from filthy home, it is reported that a woman hoarded cats. Why would a person do that? How could things get so bad?
