VIDEO: Mountain lion lounges on front porch

- Residents said seeing a mountain lion sprawled out on a front porch was the thrill of the neighborhood.

The two-year-old female mountain lion was sitting on the porch of a home in Heber, Utah as the homeowners looked out the window. "So I looked down and I said what dog is that laying on my porch, and I tapped on the glass and he or she turned around and I said, 'That ain't no dog,'" said Kathy Inman.

It didn't do anything, she said, it just laid there and rested as the neighborhood kids started coming through the back door and gazing out the Inman's window trying to catch a glimpse. 

Wildlife officers arrived and shot the cat with a tranquilizer dart and it took off running. After a couple hours, the mountain lion was discovered laying in a vacant lot.

It was kept overnight for observation and released back  into the wild. "This was the thrill of the neighborhood, this next to our little neighborhood barbecues this one was top notch," said resident Rhett Riding.
