Canadian folk singer killed by coyotes, park official says
October 30, 2009 3:36 p.m. EDT

Up-and-coming Canadian folk singer Taylor Mitchell was killed by coyotes, park officials say.

Taylor Mitchell was at the Skyline Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hikers saw coyotes attack Mitchell and called 911; she later died at a Halifax hospital
Park where attack occurred remains closed; coyote believed to be involved has been shot
Mitchell was nominated for Young Performer of the Year by Canadian Folk Music Awards

(CNN) -- A rising Canadian folk singer was killed by coyotes this week in a national park in Nova Scotia, a park spokesman said Thursday.

Taylor Mitchell, 19, was at the beginning of the Skyline Trail in Cape Breton Highlands National Park on Tuesday afternoon when she was attacked, according to Chip Bird, the Parks Canada field unit superintendent for Cape Breton.

Bird said hikers saw the coyotes attacking Mitchell and called 911. She was airlifted to a hospital in Halifax, where she died about 12 hours later, he said.

Mitchell was recently nominated for Young Performer of the Year honors by Canadian Folk Music Awards. She was touring the Maritime provinces and had a break between gigs to go hiking Tuesday, her manager, Lisa Weitz, said in an e-mail.

"She loved the woods and had a deep affinity for their beauty and serenity," she wrote.

"Words can't begin to express the sadness and tragedy of losing such a sweet, compassionate, vibrant, and phenomenally talented young woman," Weitz said.

"Her warmth, loving nature, astounding artistry, and infectious enthusiasm will be so missed and forever remembered."

Mitchell, who was originally from the Georgian Bay area in Ontario, lived in Toronto, Weitz said.

Bird said the area where the attack occurred is popular and well traveled. It remained closed, and park authorities had shot one coyote believed to be involved. A pathologist will test the animal's body for diseases that might have triggered the attack, he said.

Searches for other aggressive animals in the park continue, he said.

"Public safety is our primary concern," he said.

For those who don't believe the coyotes killed the young Lady, check it out. It is a fact. Also, a woman originally from Pennsylvania, teaching school in Alaska was killed and eaten by wolves on the Alaska Peninsula. An oilfield worker was killed by wolves in the Tar Sands area of western Canada a few years ago. I will personally pay $500 to anyone who can prove that the coyotes did not kill the Lady mentioned in the above article. You prove it and contact whomever runs this site.

Are coyotes good eatin'? BBQ'd, broiled, marinated,???

Using "threat to humans" as an excuse for the slaughter of these animals is absolutely ridiculous. Human men kill more people than these animals ever did.

Air fried they eat pretty good.

What a sexist reply. Women are just as good hunters as men.

Hell...they ought to put out a bounty on tobacco and alcohol....they kill more people per capita than any other thing in existence.....leave the poor coyotes alone....mother nature will deal with her own problems just like she has for a milliennia.

Re: 7:28PM Nobody said "threat to humans" was a reason to kill coyotes.
A poster just mentioned that coyotes had once killed a young Lady.

I know they're tough to kill. I remember as a child in that one cartoon, the coyote never died. Not sure how they survive now without any A.C.M.E. markets around.
