A family in rural Pollock Pines is OK after they say a mountain lion invaded their home.

Homeowner Mark Dolph says he was making dinner with his family when he heard his family cats running scared near the front of their home. When he went to investigate he encountered the unwelcomed large feline.

“I look and I see the door ajar,” Dolph said. “But then I looked down right here at the steps and the mountain lion had its head and front paws about three steps down.”
