Authorities in Northern California were called to a home after a mountain lion broke through a window and entered a home after confusing some taxidermy heads for live prey.

The San Bruno Police Department said the cougar broke through the window of the home around 12:20am on Tuesday.

"It is believed that the mountain lion entered the residence because of several large game, taxidermy trophy heads, mounted on the interior walls of the residence," police said in a news release.

 

The owner of the house scared the animal away, and it left through the same window it came through. There were no injuries reported in the incident.

"While mountain lion sightings are fairly common throughout Northern California, this type of incident is out of the ordinary," police said.
