The surveillance video from the family’s home in South Villa Park, west of Chicago, shows the little girl playing in the driveway. As she skips past cars parked in front of the house, a coyote runs down the street.
The child doesn’t appear to see the coyote until, as she makes her way toward a tree swing on the front lawn, the coyote makes a beeline for her. The girl turns and runs, but the coyote follows her, appearing to brush up against her before it runs away. The visibly shaken little girl rushes to the porch before going inside.
Her mother told NBC Chicago that her daughter was not harmed.
