Treasury reimburses Montana man for 'mutt-ilated' currency; dog ate 5 $100 bills

A Montana man who painstakingly gathered and reassembled parts of five $100 bills eaten by his golden retriever has been reimbursed by the U.S. Treasury for the "mutt-ilated" currency.

The Independent Record reports (http://bit.ly/1540xEA) Wayne Klinkel of Helena received a $500 check Monday.

His 12-year-old dog, Sundance, downed all but half of one of the bills in December. Sundance snacked on the cash in the family vehicle while Klinkel and his wife ate at a restaurant. They were on a road trip to visit their daughter in Colorado.

Klinkel says he carefully picked through the dog's droppings to recover parts of the bills and his daughter recovered more when the snow melted.

Klinkel cleaned and reassembled the bills, put them in plastic bags and sent them to the U.S. Treasury in April with an explanation.
