Mountain lion takes nap on suburban porch

"I looked down and I said, 'What dog is that laying on my porch?'"

Kathy Inman got the surprise of her life when she looked out her front door in suburban Heber City, Utah to see a mountain lion taking a snooze on her porch.

She told Fox 13, "I looked down and I said, 'What dog is that laying on my porch?'

When she tapped the glass the “dog” on the other side of the door turned to reveal itself as one very large cougar.

Mrs. Inman called the authorities who quickly came to dart the animal.

The cat apparently didn’t like that as it ran from the scene and couldn’t be located for an hour.

When it was found…asleep…it was taken to a shelter where it spent the night.

It was released unharmed and into the wild the next day.
