Jennifer White says the animal grabbed her daughter Cheyenne and bit her on the head during a visit Saturday at Harmony Park Safari near Huntsville, Alabama.

No one from the park returned a phone call Tuesday from The Associated Press, and the TV station says a park employee declined comment.

White tells WAFF-TV that she shot video which shows a kangaroo reaching through the holes of a large fence to grab the girl by the hair.
