Authorities say a rat broke into an ATM in India, eating and destroying almost $18,000 in cash.

USA Today reports the machine at the State Bank of India appeared to malfunctioning as patrons said it was no longer dispensing money. When technicians finally opened the ATM to have a look inside, they found between 1.2 and 1.3 million shredded rupees and a dead rat.

The manager of the SBI branch, Chandan Sharma, said they “were shocked” upon the discovery.
