Home camera video shows the animal grabbing and dragging the toddler across the lawn and pavement seconds after her father removed the child from the car seat and returned to the car to collect her toys. They have just returned home from kindergarten.

Ariel Eliyahuo heard his daughter screaming from the other side of the SUV, and then realized that she was attacked by a creature that looked like a coyote. He screamed and lunged at the animal, forcing it to let go of the girl. The coyote briefly stopped nearby, then darted away.

“She has a lot of scratches on her left leg, and one of them is very deep,” said the child’s mother, Shira Eliyahuo. “Coyote just dragged her, so her face is also bruised.”

Coyotes are a common sight in many areas of Los Angeles, although attacks on humans are rare.
