OLDHAM, England — Helping out creatures in need is a rewarding but often difficult task.
It takes a certain amount of time, money, and heartbreak, but watching an animal heal and come back to life is worth it for many.
But sometimes you get more than you bargained for when an animal finally gets their spirit and personality back. Sometimes you get a sweet, docile animal, and sometimes you get an animal that's too smart for its own good, and now it has the energy to be too smart.
According to the BBC, Alex Jones from Oldham, England, realized he had a too-smart rescue animal on his hands when he came home from work to find a herd of animals in his house. And apparently it was all led by a renegade pony.
Somehow, said pony opened an unlocked door and let a crowd of goats and ponies into the Jones home. They probably had a party and watched some age-inappropriate TV, but none of them could open the fridge to get the food they were looking for.
If the barnyard uprising wasn't enough, the hysterical laughter behind the camera lifts everything up to a new level of funny.
But as far as animal house-style parties go, this one didn't do too much damage — they only kicked around the washing machine.
It's never fun to come home to a break-in, but sometimes it's funny.
