2-year-old Los Angeles toddler attacked and dragged by legs by moose, terrifying surveillance video shows.
Footage from Friday shows the little girl’s dad pulling the family’s black SUV outside their Woodland Hills home as a coyote sneaks up on the toddler.
When the animal ran to the girl, he saw her fall from her feet, and the desert tried to drag her by her legs.
The boy’s angry cries alert his father, who runs to pick him up and yell at the crazed coyote.
“I heard him screaming and crying and I thought he fell down and I saw a coyote over there,” said his father, Ariel Eliyahuo. said NBC 4.
A panicked pop can then be seen picking up a plastic water bottle and throwing it at the coyote.
Shira Eliyahuo, the child’s mother, ran frantically from the front door to help her daughter.
“I saw that his pants were covered in blood and then I took them off and noticed that there were scratches on them,” he said. “We had to get the rabies shot and we hope everything will be fine.”
The horrific daylight attack was captured on the family’s Ring doorbell camera.
The couple has lived in their Los Angeles neighborhood for three years, and although they often encounter coyotes and other wildlife in the community, the animals are generally afraid of people.
“There are a lot of coyotes here, but they usually run away,” his mother said.
The little girl suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was treated with a rabies shot, but is still too afraid to go outside, her parents said.
California officials took the young girl’s bloody clothes to match her DNA with the coyote so they could trap and euthanize her.
