Prisca Hill, Daniel's babysitter, quickly climbed into a tree with the boy, but the attack continued.
"So I hung down from my branch and kicked the crap out of this thing and it grabs onto my foot. So, I turned around, grabbed it by the neck and threw it as far as I could into the woods and it hit the ground, running," she says. "Then, it came back around and grabbed onto his foot again."
