A Rat Broke Into an ATM, Ate Nearly $20,000 Worth of Cash, and Died

Eating money will not make you rich, but rather turn your insides into tub of paper confetti. A rat in Assam state, India, learned this hard truth earlier this week when it squeezed its way inside an ATM machine, consumed and destroyed $17,662 worth of Rupees, and promptly died.

The ATM in question was on the fritz for a few days when technicians were called to inspect it, Reuters reports. What they found looked like the contents of a paper shredder, with the rat already dead and buried within the mountain of minced up money.



State Bank of India branch manager Chandan Sharma told reporters:

“The ATM was out of order for a few days and when our technicians opened the kiosk we were shocked to find shredded notes and a dead rat...We have started an investigation into this rare incident and will take measures to prevent a recurrence.”

The rat was small enough to evade the ATM's security camera and burrow inside, ultimately ripping through $17,662 of its $42,685 supply. When the rodent's body was retrieved, it was already a stiff and withered corpse.



Although investigators found no footage of a rat entering the machine after reviewing security cameras, they later deemed that no foul play is suspected, according to the Hindustan Times.
