Devon mother is shocked to discover cattle staring at her through her living room window

A mother was left stunned when she awoke to find a cow staring into her living room window and another 50 trampling through her garden. 

Natasha Hooper, 39, was getting ready in her bathroom at her home in Sprayton, Devon, when her son Tyler Findlay, 13, told her, ‘there’s a cow looking through the window.’

At first she thought her son was just imagining things but was left gobsmacked to find the unwelcome guest had been joined by a whole herd.   

Footage shows the cattle making themselves at home in the garden and leaving a trail of destruction as they left manure all over the family’s lawn and driveway.

One nosy cow was even pictured ogling them through the living room window while others were queuing outside the property waiting to get in ‘as if it was a nightclub’.

Tyler and brother Mason Findlay, 12, were in fits of giggles watching the giant creatures take over their garden as Mrs Hooper’s husband Christopher tried to herd them out.

The adventurous cattle had escaped the farmer’s field after their morning milking, wandered up the road and surrounded the family’s home.

It took Mrs Hooper and her gardener almost five hours to clear up the cow mess, and she posted snaps of the cheeky cattle grazing to Facebook later that morning.

She said: ‘The kids were having breakfast and my husband was over in the en-suite and I heard Tyler shouting ”Mum there’s a cow looking in the window”.

‘I thought it was another one of his random little comments as usual, but then he started laughing and saying ”they’re all running round the garden”.

‘My husband came flying out of the en-suite, pulling his trousers up as he went, and then I came out of the bathroom and could see them all through the double doors into the garden.

‘The garden was full of cows, jumping around and charging at each other, obviously all stressed, and when they’re stressed their tails go up and the liquid [manure] flies out the back end.

Homeowner shocked after heavy rain reveals secret buried under backyard garden

You never know what you’re going to find when you start digging.

A homeowner in Texas reportedly made an amazing discovery in the backyard of a house he originally intended to fix up and flip. After realizing what he owned, however, he’s apparently changed his mind.

John Reynolds reportedly had no idea that there was a pool in the backyard of the house he bought in Texas for just under $20,000.

John Reynolds had no idea that there was a pool in the backyard of the house he bought for just under $20,000, The Sun reports. According to him, the backyard was a mess and the pool had been filled with dirt and other debris.

The house had reportedly been owned by a hoarder before Reynolds bought it. When he first took ownership of the house, it was full of junk, feral cats and the backyard appeared to contain an overgrown garden.

According to Reynolds, he didn’t know about the in-ground pool until a heavy downpour shifted the dirt and debris. Prior to that, he says the only thing he noticed was that one section of the backyard always seemed to be a bit “boggy.”

“It feels like I have stumbled across a winning lottery ticket,” he told The Sun. “Never in a million years when I bought the property did I think I would be swimming in my own pool. I bought it as a bit of an investment with the intention to do it up and sell it on, but it has yielded so many surprises I don’t know if I can let it go.”

Reynolds reportedly bought the house two years ago but didn’t discover the pool until a few months later. He spent over a year cleaning out the garbage, fixing leaks, and making other repairs to the pool. While it cost him about $10,000 to fix it up, installing an in-ground pool would have been significantly more expensive.

“My friends and I are in it every day for hours on end now,” says the now proud homeowner. “You couldn’t wish to find a bigger reward in your back garden.”
