At least one money-hungry rat broke into an ATM and chewed through nearly $18,000 in cash, authorities in India said.

Officials at the State Bank of India (SBI) thought the machine was merely malfunctioning when patrons told them it was no longer dispensing money.

It was “out of order” since May 20 — then technicians opened it.
