A terrifying video has appeared on social networks, showing how a raccoon attacks a 7-year-old girl from Connecticut, USA.
In the video, the girl can be heard screaming, and the attack happened in front of her house while she was getting ready to go to school.
Footage shows the animal attacking Rylee MacNamara as she left her home at around 7.45am in Kenterberry.
The raccoon had his claws stuck into the little girl’s leg as she repeatedly moved her leg in an attempt to get him off her.
However, the raccoon held her tightly, and then her mother rushed outside to help her daughter.
He grabbed Rylee and pulled the animal away. Then he brought the little girl into the house and knocked the raccoon to the ground.
