Yesterday we shared video of a 5-year-old girl being attacked by a raccoon in Connecticut. Her mom saved her by grabbing the raccoon and throwing it into the yard.
Now there's video of a 2-year-old girl being attacked by a coyote on the sidewalk in front of her house, this time in Los Angeles.
Ariel Eliyahuo had just returned home after picking his children up from daycare around 3:45pm on Friday. His daughter Ariya had just gotten out of the car when he heard her screaming and thought she had fallen down. He ran to help her and realized she was being attacked by a coyote.
“I heard Ariya scream. I thought she fell down,” Eliyahuo said. “I ran immediately to see what was going on and I saw the coyote attack her. I picked her up in my arms and tried to make the coyote go away.”
After the attack, the girl's mother noticed blood on her pants so they rushed her to the hospital. She received multiple rabies shots. She is expected to make a full recovery, but Eliyahuo says both of his children were very shaken up by the incident.
