Nothing is more terrifying than being greeted by an exotic animal roaming around your house.

This couple recently encountered a harrowing experience when a clouded leopard entered their home in Kampung Sentang Pagar Sasak, Kuala Lipis.

According to Bernama, Lipis district police chief Azli Noor said the police received a report at around 6.30pm.
