FORGET the cow that jumped over the moon, this bold beast leapt up onto a house ROOF.

FORGET the cow that jumped over the moon, this bold beast leapt up onto a house ROOF.

Stunned William de Cothi, 17, snapped the agile animal after he spotted it on the roof about six feet off the ground.

Amazed student William said: “I was looking out of my window when I saw the cow.

“At first I thought that it was an illusion and that it was in the background and not really on the roof. But after a closer look I could see it was actually on the roof."

The local teenager added: “I have heard cows can jump quite high, so I think that is how it got up there. I got my family to come and look later and they laughed. It was absolutely amazing.”

The house owner in Blagdon, Somerset, called police after getting home to find her roof seriously damaged and smashed tiles as she feared a burglar had tried to break in.

Village PC Ray Bradley said: “This was initially recorded on my figures as a burglary so I am glad I can take it off. If it wasn't for the door-to-door enquires and this photo we wouldn't have found out it was a cow responsible.”
