WATCH: 5-Year-Old Girl Chased By Coyote & Escapes Attack

A 5-year-old girl in Illinois was almost attacked by a coyote in her front yard, and the incident was caught on camera. 

The surveillance video from the family's home shows the little girl playing in the driveway. As she skips past cars parked in front of the house, a coyote runs down the street.

At first the child doesn't appear to see the coyote but then it makes a beeline for her. 

The girl turns and runs, but the coyote follows her, appearing to brush up against her before it runs away. She then runs to the porch before going inside.
