An Illinois family's doorbell security camera caught something frightening. It recorded footage of a coyote entering their yard and going after their 5-year-old daughter.

Young Christine Przybylski decided to walk to the family's mailbox to check and see if her Halloween costume had come. When it didn't, she walked back toward the house. The camera then catches the coyote lurking in the background. Christine never saw it.

 

The coyote came charging full speed across the yard, circled a tree, and then went right at Christine. It got so close that it touched her. Christine's mom heard screaming and ran to see what had happened. He parents didn't know if to believe her at first, but as you can see, the camera provided all the proof they would need.

Neighbors say they believe the coyote lives in a nearby wooded area. They say they can hear them fighting and screaming at night. Needless to say, Christine won't be allowed to play alone in the front yard anymore!
