When authorities arrived, they set up a net around the house to stop the animal from running away.
A vet fired a tranquiliser dart so the wildlife team could get the endangered clouded leopard out of the village.
State Wildlife and National Parks deputy director Mohd Zaide Mohamed Zin said the leopard may have been separated from its group and sought shelter under the house, according to a report by The Strait times

             After being shot by a tranquiliser, the team from the Department of Wildlife and National Parks covered the clouded leopard's head inside a dark sack

'The villagers were also smart enough not to disturb it and called for help immediately,' he said.
'If the leopard had been disturbed and become aggressive, the villagers could have been attacked,' he added.
The leopard was taken and released it into the nearby Kuala Krau wildlife reserve.
