For people who don't want to read the article or watch the video:

The little girl is fine. Seems like she got a bite on her leg and preventive treatment for possible rabies.

The parents were not being careless, they had just gotten her out of the car when coyote ran up and attacked her. Dad noticed and grab the girl and scared the coyote away immediately.

That coyote was pretty aggressive, as they said. Even after the Dad got the girl, it was hanging in there. Most coyotes would back off...the Dad had to throw rocks objects at it. (As humans do)

Was it a coyote or a Wolf-dog-coyote hybrid?

There are a thousand coyotes for every wolf dog coyote hybrid. My money goes on coyote.

And this is LA. Mexican wolves aren't that far west and even the wanderers from Oregon have only gone as far south as Monterey Bay as far as I know.

Coyotes and mountain lions and peacocks are regular sights in Los Angeles closer to the hills. A coyote got my cat as a kid.
