Kangaroo attacks 9-year-old girl at Harmony Park Safari

A 9-year-old girl is recovering from a kangaroo attack at a safari park in Alabama.

Jennifer White chose to surprise her daughters, ages 9 and 3, on Saturday by taking them to one of their favorite places, Harmony Park Safari, nestled in the New Hope community just south of Huntsville. The incident was caught on camera.

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

A mother's phone captured the shocking moment a kangaroo grabbed her nine-year-old daughter by the hair and then bit her on her head and ear.

Cheyenne said she was excited when her mom took her and her little sister to visit the safari on Saturday.

Cheyenne White was attacked by a kangaroo in front of her mother, Jennifer.

"I'm just glad it got me instead of my baby sister because it would have hurt her even worse", said victim Cheyene.

"I was like, Yay!" The White family left the park immediately to seek medical attention. A spokesperson said that it came from an outside source, and that it is one of two complaints filed against Harmony Safari Park this year, WHNT reported. "I thought it was playing", Cheyenne said. New fencing will go up to keep park visitors farther away from the kangaroo pen, operators said. The kangaroo trail has multiple warning signs posted at its entrance. "I don't want this to happen to somebody else's kid, because they might not be as fortunate as my daughter was".
