During a trip to the petting zoo at the Tregembo Animal Park in Wilmington, North Carolina, things went awry when 4-year-old Eva, whose hilarious sprint has been launched into a thousand memes, attempted to get a closer look at the pretty peacock's feathers.

"We'd been walking around the zoo. They had a quite a few peacocks loose just walking around," Eva's mom, Cassia, told ABC News. "This one happened to open its feathers as we walked by him. She went to look at the pretty feathers and as she walked closer to see them, he was like, 'That's close enough little girl.' He squawked at her."

She added that her daughter was fine soon after the incident.

"She was absolutely fine almost instantly and on to the next animal to see," Cassia said.
