Two coyotes have attacked and killed a 19-year-old folk singer in Nova Scotia, eastern Canada. Taylor Mitchell died in hospital after the animals pounced as she hiked alone in Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Walkers alerted park rangers after hearing her screams. Bleeding heavily from multiple bite wounds, the singer-songwriter was airlifted to a Halifax hospital, but died of her injuries on October 28th morning. Coyotes attack on humans are very rare because they are usually afraid of them. Taylor was nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award for Young Performer of the Year.
