According to the Tuolumne County Sheriff's Office, a Sonora-area family were treated to an unwelcome and uninvited guest. 

At about 9:30 p.m. Monday, a mountain lion entered the family's home, laid down on the bathroom floor. 

When the family spotted the lion, everyone ran. The family called 911, and sheriff's office and California Department Fish and Wildlife arrived on the scene. 

“The perpetrator slyly made his way through the open front door of the home. He did not threaten the resident or steal anything. After being spotted, he tried to make a run for it but ended up cornered in a bathroom,” the Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Office said in a post on Facebook.
