An ATM during service in Cambridge, United Kingdom.

In Estonia, a mouse made its nest in a cash machine and spent the weekend eating tens of thousands of kroons in bank notes. The critter was discovered after a customer making a withdrawal got half-eaten bills from the machine.

At some stage over the weekend the chewed money jammed, and the mouse seems to have spent the rest of the weekend turning the notes into bedding. It probably was attracted by the warmth from the machine and decided to make itself at home.
— Kristina Tamberg, spokeswoman for Hansapank Bank in Tallinn.

Experts are now investigating how the rodent was able to get into the ATM.
