HELENA, Mont. (AP) — 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.
Wayne Klinkel of Helena received a $500 check on Monday, the Independent Record reported.
"It was great to get the check after all the crap I went through,'' Klinkel, a graphic artist at the newspaper, joked.
