A herd of 40 cows went on the run in the middle of the night earlier this month in rural Victoria, Australia, NCA NewsWire reported.

Most were rounded up after a truck driver saw the cows and knocked on the door of the nearest home to tell the neighbours, many of whom woke to see the animals in their yards, the outlet reported.


Kay Laing, a local dairy farmer, said she spotted one of the cows sitting on her in-ground trampoline and unable to get off.

“I rang up the neighbour: ‘Oh gee, sorry, David, there’s a cow stuck on the tramp.’ ‘You’re kidding me.’ ‘No, I’m not kidding you. It’s really on the tramp,'” Laing told 3AW, a Melbourne radio station.

“I do not like cows in my yard, as everybody knows in the district,” she told 9 News Gippsland as several cows roamed behind her.

She told 3AW that the cows’ owner brought a tractor to her house to hoist the cow off the trampoline.

“I would have loved to have seen her get on,” Laing said. “I’m sure she must have been thinking, what the hell?”

She told 9 News that she hoped the cows learned a lesson.

“Not on my tramp, and certainly not in my yard!” she said.
