(KUTV) -- Is it a dog? Is it a mountain lion? Some kind of animal made its TV debut on KUTV's 2News This Morning with Reporter Morgan Saxton.

Saxton was talking about overnight flooding in Utah County when the animal walked right through her live shot.

However, there is much debate surrounding what the animal is.

After posting the video on social media, KUTV staff and viewers commented on what they thought the animal was.

Some believed it was a dog, others believed it was a mountain lion.

The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources responded to KUTV's Holly Menino, stating that biologists were heading to the area to identify the animal. They could not identify what the animal was from the live shot video.

From the video, it's difficult to tell. We will visit the scene this morning and look for tracks or any other signs to help positively identify the animal

After investigating, Utah DWR determined that it was a dog that walked through the live shot, not a mountain lion.

The owner sent 2News a photo of the dog that made its TV debut.
