Mouse builds nest egg in ATM with $20 bills

This just goes to show that even rodents know the value of today’s money.

From Yahoo! News:

LA GRANDE, Ore. – A mouse found inside an automatic teller machine — along with a nest it had built with chewed-up $20 bills — gave an Oregon gas station employee the surprise of her life. The mouse, discovered Thursday, had thoroughly torn up two bills and damaged another 14 to line his nest. Employee Millie Taylor said she screamed and slammed the machine’s door shut.

The bank replaced all the money that wasn’t extensively damaged, and the ATM has continued to work just fine. The mouse also got a reprieve: He was evicted from his nest but set free outside the station.

Other workers at the Gem Stop Chevron in La Grande in eastern Oregon say they’re mystified about how the mouse got inside the machine.
