Imagine looking out your front porch and seeing a mountain lion just lounging, taking a snooze.

That's what happened to one family in Utah. The homeowner says at first she thought it was a dog.

The family says the mountain lion lounged around for about two hours while they waited inside for wildlife officials to arrive.

Officials shot the mountain lion with a tranquilizer dart and it took off running.

The mountain lion was found an hour later lying in a vacant lot.

The mountain lion was released back into the wild.
