Mouse nesting in ATM

A mouse was found living inside an Oregon gas station's ATM. It had made a nest out of more than a dozen $20 bills. Sadly, no photos. From the AP:
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.
"Mouse builds nest in ATM with $20 bills"


  1. “He was evicted from his nest but set free outside the station.” Generally you have to take a mouse 5 miles away, or they’ll just move right back in where they were.

  2. In a related story, an Oregon man has been caught selling burglary kits to bank employees.

    The kit consists of a simple instruction sheet and a single mouse.

    According to the instruction sheet, you put some of the bank’s money in your pocket, then scrunch up some of the remaining cash and leave the mouse in the nest of left over notes to take the blame for the robbery.

    This method has so far been successful in at least one ingenious theft.


  3. Apparently some nest money IS protection against the harsh mechanisms of modern banking.

    That, my dear friend, was terribly clever. Nice work.
