Kangaroo reaches through fence, attacks little girl at safari park

A 9-year-old Alabama girl's terrified screams were captured by a cellphone video her mother was shooting when a kangaroo at a drive-thru zoo violently grabbed the girl and began biting her this weekend. "I don't want it to happen to someone else's kids because they may not be as fortunate as my daughter was", Jennifer White said. In the video, you can see there are large spaces where the kangaroo can fit its head through. Jennifer says if the park had a better barrier preventing contact with animals, or fencing that wouldn't allow it, her daughter won't have been bitten.

The park was asked to comment on the situation but declined. "I'm just glad it got me instead of my baby sister because it would've hurt her even worse", Cheyenne White said. At the entrance to the kangaroo trail, there are signs posted showing a state law as a warning to customers that they take their own risks when visiting an agri-tourism business. The line rings, with no option to leave a message. Cheyenne White was at Harmony Park Safari with her younger sister and mother when the kangaroo struck. Pointing to a sign simply isn't enough. You can clearly see it or pet it or it could touch you, which makes you feel more, like, safe.

"I thought it was playing", Cheyenne told WAFF.

Our NBC affiliate, WAFF reports that this wasn't the first time the family has visited Harmony Park Safari in Huntsville, Ala., but it was their first time seeing the kangaroos.

White said the encounter began innocently enough, with the kangaroo mirroring her daughter's movements as she walked back and forth outside the enclosure.
