A rat took up residence in a State Bank of India ATM in the town of Tinsukia, India. During its stay, the rat shredded $17,662 worth of Indian rupees.

The ATM was out of order for days after it stopped dispensing money, according to Reuters. Patrons reported the issue, and when technicians looked into the problem, they found the dead rat and shredded money.
