Mountain lion found napping on Utah couple's front porch

Kathy Inman of Heber said she and her husband, Floyd, looked out a window Wednesday night and saw what appeared to be a yellow dog napping on their front porch.

"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.'"

No, a dog it ain't.

The couple said the cougar spent about two hours on their porch.
"It didn't do anything, it just laid there," Floyd Inman said. "We've been in the Park City / Heber area for 30 years, and I've never had one that close to me before."


  1. That's a beautiful animal. Well-fed...

    1. And contented. You want your neighborhood mountain lion to be well fed and contented.

    2. Best to let sleeping lions alone.

      But it's a very cool encounter.

  2. I know a lady who would open her door to offer the "poor little kitty" some warm milk. Don't know how she has lived so long, it amazes me.
