12. Cash in a Bag
In August 2011, Wayne Sabaj, a 51-year-old unemployed carpenter from Illinois, was picking broccoli in his backyard garden when he found $150,000 stashed in a nylon bag. He reported the discovery to the police with the understanding that if the money was not claimed by anyone else by the end of 2012, it would be his. Would you have done the same?

11. Human Remains
In 2011, Don Selby in Salt Lake City, Utah was working with his crew in a homeowner’s yard. Some reports say they were digging out a water main while other reports suggest they were digging up a pond. Either way, they made a gruesome discovery – human bones. Frightened by the unexpected find, he called the police.

10. Bronze Age Headstone
When amateur historian Stephen Davis from England began researching the history of his house, he came across a reference to an ancient stone called the Horestone near Stroud, which had been lost for 350 years! Eventually, he began swapping notes with a local historian named Claire Forbes and eventually decided to go on a hunt for it.

9. Loaded Machine Gun
Earlier this year, a man from northeast Calgary, Canada made a disturbing discovery in his backyard. Between his garage and the fence, he found a plastic bag containing a pillowcase. This is always a bad sign. When he looked inside, to his surprise, there was a fully-loaded machine gun along with a cell phone. How the gun ended up in his backyard or who it belonged to is still not clear.

8. 1700s Cemetery
Some people say that New Orleans is built over the dead and it seems that way, with its plethora of cemeteries. When Vincent Marcello from New Orleans, Louisiana decided to dig a plot in his backyard for a swimming pool, he ended up discovering a historic cemetery dating back to the 1700s.

7. A Hollywood Actress
In 1996, 47-year-old Canadian-born actress Margot Kidder, the spunky original Lois Lane in the “Superman” movies, was found in someone’s backyard in Glendale, California. The actress, who was battling health and financial problems at that time, had been missing for three days before she was found. She was supposed to have flown to Arizona from Los Angeles to teach a class.

6. Church Bells
In 2013, a man from the Czech Republic was digging up his backyard to install some pipes when he stumbled across some unusual metal objects. Just as a side note, always call the city before you start digging deep in your backyard!

5. Mastodon Bones
In 2012, two boys named Eric and Andrew from Detroit, Michigan were building a dam in the creek that flows through their backyard when Eric saw a strange-looking rock sticking up from the ground. Eric thought it was a rock but his cousin, Andrew, immediately recognized it as an animal bone.

4. Meteorites
The chances of you finding a piece of meteorite in your backyard is pretty small, let alone a meteorite hitting your house six times in a row. But that is exactly what happened to Radivoke Lajic, a Serbian man living in a little village in northern Bosnia. It looks like the man´s property, for some reason, attracts space rocks!

3. WWII Bombs
During WWII there was a bombing range called Pine Castle Range. Now thousands of homes have been built along the northern side of the 12,000-acre area. Usually, when we think of World War era bombs, we think of Europe, where the majority of the fighting occurred. However, Pinecastle Range was located in Orlando, Florida.

2. Whale Fossil
In 1978, 17-year-old Gary Johnson from Palos Verde, California noticed a large rock sticking out of a hill between his house and a neighbor’s. It appeared to have a bone pattern. Thinking it could be an important find, Johnson called in an expert to evaluate it. I don’t know what kind of expert he was but anyway, he said it had no value.

1. A Cheetah
In 2008, nine-year-old Toby from Hamerton, in the U.K. ran to his mother shouting that there was a cheetah in the garden. His mother dismissed his claims as childhood excitement. Clearly. I mean, its the UK. That is, until Julie-Ann Taylor looked out of the kitchen window. To her astonishment, she realized her son wasn’t joking.
