For a long time now, people have been breaking out their shovels to uncover some pretty terrifying things in their backyards. But not all of these scary discoveries were found under layers of dirt. Some people have seen mysterious killers lurking in their backyards while others have stumbled across bloodthirsty animals.
Whatever the case may be, you’re going to want to be a bit more careful from here on out whenever you decide to go into your backyard, because you just never know what scary things you might discover. Before we get started, I want to know – what is the scariest thing that you have found in your home? Let me know your answers in the comment section below. Alright let’s get down to business, this is the top 10 scary things discovered in the Backyard that you won’t believe.
10 Live Bombs From WWII
Over in Orlando, Florida thousands of homes were built on a World War 2 bombing range. And ever since people started to move in, they have been finding rockets and bombs buried in their backyards. I hope for their sake they got a really good deal on their house and didn’t pay full price. But that’s not all. These bombs are live and ready to explode at any moment.
I guess the neighborhood came together and demanded that these bombs be cleared away. Well in 2008, a 10-million-dollar cleanup was arranged but they said that they can’t guarantee that all of the bombs will be removed. Is this real-life right now? I’d go hammer a for sale sign on my property and move far away. How scary would that be knowing that your whole life could be blown up at any second?
09 Real-Life Cheetah
What would you do if you were playing in the backyard and then all of a sudden you spot a cheetah in your garden? I’d probably die from fear and just accept my fate that I’m about to become his lunch. But for a nine-year-old boy in the UK, he was able to make it inside to tell his mother.
At first, she didn’t believe him because it sounds so farfetched. But once she looked out of her kitchen window, she saw the 6-foot-long predator licking his lips. Apparently, he had escaped from a nearby animal sanctuary and something tells me that somebody definitely lost their job.
08 Giant Earthworm
A man from China was hanging clothes up to dry in his backyard when he made this startling discovery. At first, he thought that it was some sort of snake but when he took a closer look, it dawned on him that it was actually a giant earthworm that was nearly 20 inches long. Biologists couldn’t believe their eyes when they came to examine this enormous worm. What has this thing been eating? Squirrels? And how many huge Earthworms are out there living underground? Maybe that’s an answer I don’t actually want to know.
07 Huge Graveyard
In New Orleans, a man decided to install an inground pool but after he started to dig up the dirt to lay the foundation, he uncovered 15 caskets that date back 100s of years. It’s believed that his property was built over the infamous St. Peter cemetery which is a graveyard that was known for staking graves on top of one another. Originally, when the man purchased the house, he knew that it had some historical value but he had no idea that it was this historic.
When he talked to the archaeologist, he believed that the graveyard became too overcrowded so that’s what caused it to shut down. I wonder if this man got to fulfill his dreams of putting in a pool, or was he forced to cover the caskets back up with dirt.
06 Mysterious Glowing Object
Two girls were digging in their backyard looking for worms for their upcoming fishing trip when all of a sudden, they stumbled upon this insane looking thing. They found this transparent, and shiny blue object buried deep in the ground. At first, they thought it was part of a meteorite but when scientists came to look at it, they weren’t able to come up with a definitive answer. They didn’t really know what it was or how to explain it. So, what could this mysterious glowing orb be? We might never get to know that answer.
05 Cold War Fallout Shelter
A family in Wisconsin discovered an old underground fallout shelter in their backyard but they never went inside of it for 10 years because they were terrified of what might be in there. But curiosity got the best of them and they decided to finally open the hatch to see what might be lurking inside of this creepy bunker. And this is what they saw, so brace yourselves, because this clip is pretty scary.
All jokes aside, the family didn’t find any human remains down there or anything else too scary. Except for a toilet…they found a used toilet. But this fallout shelter is still a pretty scary reminder of how scared Americans were during the Cold war.
04 Ancient Human Remains
When people go digging in their backyards, they are hoping to find long lost buried treasure or precious stones but sometimes people stumble across things buried in their backyards that they wish they’ve never seen. That’s exactly what happened in March 2014 when a little boy from Utah noticed something strange poking out of the dirt in his parent’s backyard.
The family called the police and after their investigations, they realized that this strange object was actual human remains. The remains were sent to the Medical Examiner for testing and as it turns out, they belonged to a Native American who lived their thousands of years ago. I guess this little boy won’t be digging in the backyard ever again.
03 Crocodile In The Pool
There’s nothing better than going to your backyard for a relaxing night swim underneath the stars unless there is a seven-foot hungry crocodile trespassing in your pool. If you guys have an inground pool, you’re probably going to want to check if man-eating creatures are swimming in there before you do your cannonball, because it might be the last thing you ever do. A family in Florida found this hungry gator at the bottom of their pool after they went to turn off all of the pool lights.
02 Mysterious Creature
Let me show you a picture of this thing and you guys tell me what you think it is. What the heck is that?! Well, pictures of this slimy, pink creature are said to have been found in a woman’s backyard. I’m going to assume that this is our proof that aliens exist.
This is probably one of the scariest pictures that I have seen in a really long time. People all over the internet are speculating that this thing is either an alien, face-hugger or some sort of animal fetus. In case you’re wondering, this is a face hugger.
01 Creepy Serial Killer Man
This story comes from Reddit user Fletcher Sketch. One night, she was sitting in her living room around 1 am just watching tv. From her couch, she could see through the dining room and out into the backyard. As she was watching her show, she saw something move out of the corner of her eye so she quickly focused her attention on the patio door. That’s when she saw some creepy man just staring at her from the patio door and it looks like he was trying to get in. She ran upstairs and grabbed a metal bar and just waited.
After waiting for what must’ve felt like an eternity, she decided to go to the other bedroom and look out of the window to see if he was still there. She saw the creepy man casually walking down the street holding some sort of weapon. Well, I think it’s safe to say that she didn’t get any sleep that night and she probably should’ve called the police instead of hiding upstairs with a little metal bar. Well, there you guys have it.
