A Montana man who pieced together the five $100 bills eaten by his golden retriever said he was reimbursed by the federal government five months later. Wayne Klinkel (of Helena) said he and his wife were taking a road trip to visit their daughter and her husband in Denver during the Christmas season and their golden retriever, Sundance, ate the five $100 bills while they were inside a restaurant. Klinkel started collecting Sundance’s droppings during the trip and piece them back together before shipping them off to the Federal Treasury.
Police in Poland are searching for a vandal who damaged a bronze statue of Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II in the city of Gdansk by cutting off one arm of the former U.S. president and stealing it. The statue was unveiled just last year to honor Reagan and the Polish-born pope, who were both widely credited with helping Poland topple communism 24 years ago.
