5-Year-Old Girl Screams as She Chased by Coyote

Playing Coyote Chases 5-Year-Old Girl: ‘It Was Like Watching a Horror Movie’

An Illinois girl got the scare of her young life as a coyote chased her around her yard. 

Surveillance video shows 5-year-old Christine playing in her driveway as unbeknownst to her the coyote begins following. 

Suddenly, Christine turns around and realizes what's going on behind her, and shrieks.

“It came up and around the tree,” she told Inside Edition. “Then he chased me to the house and I screamed. I was yelling for Mom.” 

When her mother heard the scream, she said she knew something was awry.

No one in the family had ever seen a coyote in their neighborhood, which is just outside Chicago.

Christine said it chased her, coming so close she could feel its hair. 

The girl said she was afraid it was going to “eat me," but luckily for her, she was able to make it inside before anything terrible occurred
