This rat nearly got away with $18,000! 

After reports of a malfunctioning ATM, investigators found $18,000 in shredded bank notes and the remains of one money-hungry rat.

Officials report that the clever rodent evaded security, entered into the ATM vault, and proceeded to destroy, and feast upon, nearly half the cash locked inside.  Out of the $42,685 that was supposed to be available, only $25,022 was recovered intact.     

“We have started an investigation into this rare incident and will take measures to prevent a recurrence,” said branch manager Chandan Sharma.

Police say that the rat acted alone, with no human accomplices.
