Woman Videotapes Kangaroo Grabbing Girl At Animal Park

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A woman says her 9-year-old daughter was attacked by a kangaroo at an animal park in Alabama, and she’s got video to prove it.

Jennifer White says the animal grabbed her daughter Cheyenne and bit her on the head during a visit Saturday at Harmony Park Safari near Huntsville, Alabama.

White tells WAFF-TV that she shot video which shows a kangaroo reaching through the holes of a large fence to grab the girl by the hair.

The girl now has more than a dozen stitches in her head.

No one from the park returned a phone call Tuesday from The Associated Press, and the TV station says a park employee declined comment.

The video shows a warning sign that says “I bite” on the kangaroo’s enclosure.

    Don’t keep your child away from an animal that bites, let her go near then video it biting her instead of pulling her away. The mind boggles. I hope the animal park doesn’t pay compensation.
