19 year old female Canadian singer killed by Two coyotes
Two coyotes attacked and killed a young Canadian woman while she was hiking alone in a national park in eastern Canada.

The victim was identified as Taylor Mitchell, 19, a promising singer-songwriter from Toronto who was touring her new album on the east coast.

She was hiking solo on a trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia when the attack occurred. She was airlifted to a Halifax hospital in a critical condition and died the following morning, authorities said.

Coyotes, which also are known as prairie wolves, are found from Central America to the United States and Canada.

Wildlife biologist Bob Bancroft said coyote attacks are extremely rare because the animals are usually shy.

Bancroft, a retired biologist with Nova Scotia's Department of Natural Resources, said it's possible the coyotes thought Mitchell was a deer or other prey.

"It's very unusual and is not likely to repeated," Bancroft said. "We shouldn't assume that coyotes are suddenly going to become the big bad wolf."

Royal Canadian Mounted Police spokeswoman Brigdit Leger said other hikers heard Mitchell's screams for help on Tuesday and called emergency police dispatchers.

Police who were in the area reached the scene quickly and shot one of the animals, apparently wounding it. But the wounded animal and a companion coyote managed to get away.

Paul Maynard of Emergency Health Services said Mitchell was already in a critical condition when paramedics arrived on the scene and had multiple bite wounds over her entire body.

"She was losing a considerable amount of blood from the wounds," he said.

An official with Parks Canada said they blocked the entrance to the trail where Mitchell was attacked and were trying to find the animals to determine what prompted such an unusual attack.

"There's been some reports of aggressive animals, so it's not unknown," said Helene Robichaud, the park's superintendent. "But we certainly never have had anything so dramatic and tragic."

Mitchell was an up-and-coming folk and country musician who was nominated for a 2009 Canadian Folk Music Award in the Young Performer of the Year category.

"Words can't begin to express the sadness and tragedy of losing such a sweet, compassionate, vibrant, and phenomenally talented young woman," Lisa Weitz, Mitchell's manager, said in an email.

"She just turned 19 two months ago, and was so excited about the future."

We know Thread: Up-and-coming folk singer killed by coyotes
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

If she had packed a small Ruger LCP with her it would have saved her. You need protection from animals ...and most of all people out on wilderness trails...just like the pioneer days. There aren't police cruisers out there. If you come across the wrong animal or person out there then you are at their mercy.

She was probably on her rags.

The animals smelled her a mile away

Well if it wasn't for Libtards in Canukastan, people would pack heat (guns).

I live on an acreage, the coyotes are huge and eating all the cats and other small animals.

I should be able to have a gun to protect my small children without having to fill out papers & forms granting the gov't jurisdiction into my house and puting me on some fire arms list.

She did something she shouldn't have, I bet. She got down on the ground and curled up, responding to some lecture she'd once heard about bear attacks, then the coyotes bit through one of her carotid arteries.

Just a guess. You gotta stand on your feet and say BOO!

You don't need to pack "heat".
