Recently a teenager, a rising music star was mauled to death by two coyotes while hiking alone in Canada. The 19-year-old Taylor Mitchell was a singer and songwriter from Toronto.
Two coyotes pounced on her while she was hiking alone on a trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Emergency Health Services’ personnel said that she was bitten all over her body and lost a huge amount of blood. She succumbed to injuries later.
Wildlife biologists said that coyote attacks are very rare as they are generally shy and are afraid of humans. Coyotes may have mistaken Taylor to a deer or any other prey.
Taylor was recently nominated for a 2009 Canadian Folk Music Award in the category, ‘Young Performer of the Year’.
Apart from her music, she was said to be very passionate about spending the time with the nature. She loved to be in the woods enjoying its beauty and serenity.
When the decision was made to kill the coyotes, her grief stricken mother’s reaction was praise worthy. She asked the authorities to spare the animals involved in the attack on her daughter. She said that we only take calculated risks by entering their space. She also said that Taylor wouldn’t have wanted them to be killed. She said that Mitchell was well versed in wilderness camping and was also planning to volunteer at the Toronto Wildlife Centre in the future.
