Imagine having a mountain lion in your home?

Well that's exactly what happened to one guy in El Paso County overnight when a mountain lion barrages through the front door.

Clifton Sanches said, "I heard some noise outside. The dogs were just barking like crazy. I got up to shut the dogs up and a mountain lion came through my window. Straight through my screen door."

That's when the man said he ran out scared and waited for sheriff's deputies to arrive.
The mountain lion stayed in the home just off of Highway 115 for some time.. until he finally broke free.

The cat was able to get away.

But officers say the best thing to do in this situation is to wait it out to avoid a confrontation with a big cat.
