Mountain lion found trapped inside California family's bathroom

SONORA, Calif. -- Sometimes if you leave a door open, a stray cat will walk into your home. But a family in Sonora, California got more than they expected.

A young mountain lion walked into the family's home and ended up trapped in a hallway bathroom.

The homeowners snapped a quick picture before locking the door.

Out of options, the mountain lion did what cats do and took a nap on the bathroom floor.

When wildlife officials arrived, they broke the bathroom window and encouraged the lion to jump out and run away.
