    Child attacked by kangaroo at Alabama animal park.

    HUNTSVILLE, AL ([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) — A 9-year-old girl is recovering after being bitten on the head by a kangaroo while visiting Harmony Park Safari in Huntsville, Alabama.
    Jennifer White happened to be recording her 9-year-old daughter Cheyenne’s interaction with the animal when the attack happened Saturday.
    The video shows spaces in the fence large enough for the kangaroos to poke their heads and arms through. They’re also large enough for children to do the same.

    Idiot parents should not have encouraged the little brats behavior.

    She was and you can bet the mother was telling her to do it.

    Cheyenne's initial encounter with the kangaroo was harmless. She was playing with him, mimicking his actions as he did her's. The footage showed that her three-year-old sister had even reached out her hand to the animal.
    Suddenly the park animal poked its clawed fingers through the park's fence - which was punctured with large holes - and bit her while she was bent over.
    'I thought it was playing,' Cheyenne told WAFF. 'I’m just glad that it got me instead of my baby sister, because it would have hurt her even worse.'
    Alabama law states that agritourism businesses like this park cannot be held responsible for visitors' injuries.
    'You are assuming the risk of participating in this agritourism activity,' the law reads.

    According to Facebook [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Kangaroo bites a nine-year-old girl at an Alabama animal park. The child's mother is suing.

    There were signs warning people the animal would bite.

    Let's hope the park has attorneys that will point out it was not the animal's fault that this 'mother' (I use that lightly) showed such poor judgment.
