Even House Speaker Paul Ryan isn’t immune from rodents chomping on his vehicle’s engine wiring.

At a speech Thursday in Washington, Ryan noted that a family of woodchucks had eaten away at the wiring on his Chevrolet Suburban over the winter, according to reports in the Washington Times and the Washington Examiner.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Wisconsin Republican told the audience at the Economic Club of Washington that he hasn’t driven a car in three years and that he would have to buy a new vehicle after he discovered his Suburban was “eaten by animals,” the news sites reported.

Ryan said a family of woodchucks feasted on the Suburban while it was stored at his mother’s home in Wisconsin, the Times reported. Ryan said the SUV has been stored there since 2015, the year he became House speaker and was assigned a security detail.

According to the Washington Times article, Ryan’s mother went to Florida for the winter and when she returned the SUV wouldn’t start. It stated Ryan took the vehicle to a mechanic, who discovered the woodchuck damage.

Ryan, who isn’t seeking reelection, said he recently renewed his license and that he plans to buy a Ford F-150 pickup truck to replace the Suburban.
