A North Carolina family's trip to the petting zoo didn't exactly go as planned.

A 4-year-old girl names Eva went over to pet a peacock when, according to, things went from "Hi, pretty bird," to "Run for your lives!"

Eva's mom said she thought she was going to be taking a picture of her daughter petting the bird, but then the animal squawked and pivoted toward her, sending the little girl running in terror.

Her mother posted the picture and now memes of the girl are flooding reddit.
