Mother discovers cows staring at her through her living room window

You nosy cow! Mother is shocked to discover cattle staring at her through her living room window after herd of 50 trampled through her garden

  • Natasha Hooper, 39, was at home in Sprayton, Devon, when she found the cows
  • Roughly 50 cows trampled through her garden and left a slurry of manure  
  • Her husband Christopher managed to heard the cows back into their field
  • Mrs Hooper spent five and a half hours cleaning the garden from manure 

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.

Mrs Hooper (pictured with her husband Christopher and daughter Izabelle-Rose) 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’

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.

‘The kids were laughing, running from window to window and Mason, who’s severely autistic, was shouting at them that they’re naughty and ”get out of the garden”.

‘When my husband went out to the front gate to see what was going on, he said there was a queue of them right down the lane waiting to come in. Like the queue to a nightclub.’

Mr Hooper and his father, who came to help, eventually managed to herd the cows back to their field, leaving just a slurry of manure behind that took hours to clean.

Mrs Hooper, who also has a four-month-old daughter named Izabelle-Rose Hooper, insists nothing like this has ever happened before.

She said she spent around two hours removing the muck from her large five-car driveway and the gardener spent another two-and-a-half hours cleaning the lawn.

Mrs Hooper added: ‘When the gardener heard what happened he shuffled around some clients and came in the afternoon, and he had to scrape [the muck] off the garden, then cut the grass and re-cut it.

‘I managed to get the bulk of it cleaned up but obviously cow poo stains and because the driveway is made up of small bricks I’m having to get the gardener to jet wash it all for me this week.’

Her Facebook post said: ‘Woke up to a few visitors in my garden. To think the hubby actually moaned about clearing the dog poo this morning.’
