Kelsi Butt is 4 years old, and the attack happened so fast, she thought it was a bicycle coming toward her.
Instead, it was a mountain lion at her family’s campsite in eastern Idaho, reports the Rexburg Standard Journal.
The big cat actually grabbed Kelsi and tried to drag her away, but her parents and others in the group began yelling and moving toward the animal and scared it away.
“It didn’t have a good hold so it put its paws on her to get a better grip,” Kelsi’s mother, Kera, tells East Idaho News. Incredibly, Kelsi was largely unharmed, save for scratches and some bite and claw marks. She had to receive antibiotics and rabies shots but is otherwise fine.
