A man received a shock of his life when he came out of his house only to discover that hundreds of sheep broke into his yard and refused to leave.
Scott Russo from Lincoln, California, spotted what he believed to be 200 wooly residents surrounding his house after the authorities brought the livestock to the area to deal with vegetation overgrowth that encourages the spreading of wildfires.
“Once a year they graze for two or three days to clear the overgrowth,” Mr. Russo explained in an interview with Bored Panda.
“The curious sheep were peeking their heads in our back gate for a while but would scamper off as soon as they saw us. Then one came in, which became a dozen in the blink of an eye, and then hundreds.
“When we tried to corral them out, they would only shift to the other parts of the yard as others continued to flood in through the gate. It happened very quickly.”
Fortunately for us, Scott managed to capture the entire thing on his phone camera. As seen in the video, shouting ‘Get off my lawn!’ clearly wasn’t enough for sheep to budge, much to the amusement of Scott.
“My husband seemed entertained by the situation, but I was pretty nervous. I felt like it was urgent that we get the sheep out of the yard,” Erin said.
“Initially, we were all in the yard – my husband, me, and our two daughters… but, as soon as I realized how many sheep were coming in, I rushed our girls inside and they watched from there. Our 4 and 5-year-old daughters thought it was hilarious. They kept saying ‘Daddy let the leader in!’”
In an attempt to get rid of the invasive sheep, Erin began waving her tambourine while jumping on the family’s trampoline. As it turned out, this was enough to get the sheep to leave.
“I thought that something loud might help get them to leave the yard. So, I grabbed my daughter’s play tambourine,” Erin added.
“Along with help from my husband leading the way and stopping more from coming in, this helped do the trick.”
Recalling the incident with a happy ending, Scott admitted: “I’m a silly kinda guy. I always want to provide a show for my girls. What thoughts were going through your head? Adapt, overcome, improvise – I’m a former US Marine.”
