Kangaroo attacks girl at zoo

Kangaroo attacks girl at zoo

Speaking about the ordeal her daughter faced, White told WAFF: 'You blame yourself sometimes, like, you know, "why did I take her to the park that day?", "Why did I take her to see the kangaroo?'"

Additional barriers will be constructed, but a kangaroo that bit a 9-year-old girl will remain at a wild animal park in Alabama, according to news outlets there.

She was only centimetres from the captive roo when her three-year-old sister reached through the wire fence, causing the Australian native to lash out and grab Cheyenne by the hair. She said she is unhappy with how Harmony Park Safari - where the attack took place - handled the situation.

Staffers say they hoped the little girl is okay.

Jennifer White took this cell phone video of her daughters, up close to the kangaroo.

Alabama women's golf team trails by 5 shots in NCAA regional
Cara Barker had two of Tech's three birdies during that stretch, both of which came over the two par-5s that closed the round. Freshman Sarah Shipley, playing in her first career NCAA Regional, had the second-best round of the day for the Wildcats.

Jennifer White was recording with her cellphone as the kangaroo reaches its head and arms through the fence.

"I'm just glad I was there", Jennifer White said.

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

"I thought it was playing", said Cheyenne.

The park has not commented on the incident. The kangaroo trail has multiple warning signs posted at its entrance. There are also two plaques on the fence that say "I Bite". "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.
