Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A wild cougar helped out the guards at a Utah prison by performing a "perimeter patrol" on the fences outside the grounds.

The Utah Department of Corrections tweeted a photo of the mountain lion wandering just outside of the perimeter fence surrounding the Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison.

The department said the photo was snapped by a security camera outside the facility on Friday night.

"How's THIS for perimeter patrol? A cougar was caught on camera outside the fences of Central Utah Correctional Facility in Gunnison last night," the tweet said.
