Cheyenne, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -Wyoming animal encounters are common, but some are certainly scarier than others.

Here is one encounter you defiantly don’t want to see so close to your home.

On Wednesday morning, local homeowners had the wake-up call of a lifetime.

“I almost had a heart attack but she came to the right house to get relocated. I am not sure if any of our neighbors would have done the same,” said Jennifer Belmont.

Jennifer and Vince Belmont said they had a mountain lion jump their fence and make her way into the window cellar.

Alarmed they quickly made their way back into their home.

“Had I gone out there when she was out there I do not know if the story would be the same” said Jennifer Belmont

The couple called game and fish to get the lion out safely.

The lion posed no immediate threat to the family and authorities are working to get the animal relocated.

“It shows Wyoming at its finest it can be dangerous but at the same time we have good personnel to take care of everything,” said Vince.

The details of the relocation are unknown at this time.
