Man returns bills eaten by dog, gets check from government
HELENA, Mont. (AP) - The dog ate his money, but a Montana man has gotten it back -- all $500 of it.
Wayne Klinkel's golden retriever Sundance found the five $100 bills when he was left in the car during a road trip in December. The dog scarfed down all but half of one of the bills.
Klinkel carefully picked through the dog's droppings to recover parts of the bills, cleaned them and reassembled them. He put them in plastic bags and sent them to the U.S. Treasury in April, explaining what happened.
Finally, on Monday, he received a $500 check in the mail.
