"You blame yourself sometimes, like, "Why did I take her to the park that day?"
Additional barriers will be constructed, but a kangaroo that bit a 9-year-old girl will remain at a wild animal park in Alabama, according to news outlets there.
"It grabbed her through the fence and chewed on her head".
White claimed that her daughter was attacked by a kangaroo and had video evidence of the happening.
Cheyenne White was with her mother and younger sister. Mom drove them to one of the girls' favorite places.
Jennifer White took this cell phone video of her daughters, up close to the kangaroo.
"I thought it was playing", said Cheyenne. The video shows the kangaroo reaching its head and arms through the fence.
WAFF reported that safari owners declined to comment on the incident, but pointed to a sign posted at the entrance to the kangaroo trail that details a state law saying people take their own risks when visiting an agri-tourism venue. Cheyenne had to have 14 stitches in her head, and is recovering at home.
White said: "I think children not being able to access the animal by reach or the animal to the children would help a whole lot". "I don't want this to happen to somebody else's kid, because they might not be as fortunate as my daughter was".
A warning plaque that read "I bite" was visible on the kangaroo enclosure at the time of the attack.
