Mom slams rogue neighbor for refusing to remove ‘creepy’ human skeleton outside their home – while complaining Halloween gag scares her kids
- Mom says the neighbor’s skeleton scares kids
- Halloween prop stares straight into the backyard
A creepy human skeleton at the heart of an ongoing neighborhood dispute terrifies children, a Sydney mother lamented.
The woman and her family have been unable to convince their neighbor to remove a plastic skeleton hanging from their garage.
She says the Halloween-style prop looks directly at her backyard and scares her kids — but her neighbors have refused to take it down.
The fed-up mom took to Facebook this week to ask how she could fix the problem after police told her there was nothing they could do.
“My neighbor put a human skeleton on his garage closer to (our) fence. It’s an old building so it’s less than 900mm from the border,” she wrote.
“Only we can see the skeleton as it’s right in front of our backyard, and it’s scary for our kids.”

The fed up mother explained that her fence was already the maximum height for a fence in NSW and that bamboo would take a year to grow.
The fierce dispute recently took a turn when the same neighbor installed a security camera that also pointed directly at the woman’s backyard.
“Neighbors have said they are not going to remove it and have also placed a security camera next to the skeleton – after we asked them to remove it,” the woman continued.
“The police came out and they can’t do anything because it’s his property and he can hang anything he wants.
“He set up the security camera the day after the police came. So I’ll probably talk to the police about that again.’

Social media users agreed that the presence of the skeleton was disturbing.
“Oh wow, how insensitive to your kids,” one of them remarked.
‘This is rancid; I don’t like your neighbors,” wrote a second.
A third user encouraged the woman to transform the skeleton into a friend of her children by naming him and greeting him every morning.
