An Afton Iowa rancher ran out to the mailbox to try and stop his cow from eating all the mail.

Keep scrolling to see what else cows have eaten.

You've probably heard that old excuse, "The dog ate my homework."

I actually had a new puppy eat my paycheck, back when we all got paper paychecks from work.

These days mailboxes don't hold the same volume that they used to.
