Farm animals roam free around British street

These pictures show a British street which is located on a common meaning more than 300 cows, horses and donkeys are free to roam the road - and peer in the windows.The 500-metre long 'Butt Street' forms part of the 451-acre Minchinhampton Common in the Cotswolds - run by the National Trust.The common is not fenced or bordered off - and residents are entitled to release their cattle there.It means over 300 animals are allowed to roam freely among the houses on Butt Street - and often stop for a glance inside.Butt Street is located on Minchinhampton Common - one of the largest grassland commons in the Cotswolds. Photos show cows and horses happily wandering through Butt Street and into the town's market square.And Paul Blower, who lives on the street in Minchinhampton, Glos, said he loves the animals wandering past his house.The 47-year-old said: "I just love it, having cows, horses - there's donkeys as well."They are down the road weekly.

They eat the grass on the common but they want to find something a bit tastier, like the odd clematis or rose bush."They come down for a munch.

You walk out the front door and there's always a cow pat out there to greet you.

My dog loves eating them."He says that the cows are very friendly and his nine-year-old daughter enjoys seeing them roaming the neighbourhood.Paul added: "You hear stories about people walking through fields and being chased by the cows - but here they are just so used to seeing humans walking around and stuff."Literally, the dog runs in between them, kids play around them and the cows just don't flinch."Cows are released in May every year and then taken back in by farmers in November for the winter.
