Puma paid unexpected visit to house in Chile

A family in Lo Curro, Chile were given a surprise on Wednesday morning when they discovered a puma in their kitchen.

Their first reaction was to lock the big cat in the room and call police.

Arriving police personnel noted the unusual visit and communicated with staff of the Agricultural and Livestock Service (SAG), who sedated the animal before putting it in a cage and removing it to a safe place.

The fact that the puma was relatively peaceful suggests that the animal is owned by a private individual. If so, the owner risks being charged with illegal possession of a protected species.
