Wayne Klinkel of Montana said: “Sundance [The canine in question] is notorious for eating anything and everything, so right away I knew what happened.”

Wearing rubber gloves, he picked portions of the five $100 bills out of the dog poo.

“I pretty much recovered two fairly complete bills, and had some other pieces,” Klinkel said. “But it wasn’t nearly enough there to do anything with it.”

Apparently an experienced mutilated currency examiner will figure out if there is any eligibility for reimbursing 51 per cent of Klinkel’s loss.

Perhaps he should focus more on feeding the dog adequately, then worrying about digging through waste to potentially get $250 back within the two year returns process.
