Another Coyote Attack In Stanley Park Just Happened While A Women Was Out Running

Another coyote attack in Stanley Park was reported on the evening of Thursday, July 22. This is the fifth known attack in the Vancouver park in the month of July alone.*

On Thursday around 9:30 p.m., a woman was jogging along the seawall when she was bitten on the leg by a coyote. Her injuries were minor.

This follows the news of a 2-year-old girl being attacked on July 12, also around 9:30 p.m. This happened in the parking lot near the aquarium and the little girl was taken to the hospital to have her injuries treated.

Prior to that incident, the Conservation Officer Service reported that three people were attacked by a coyote on the morning of July 7, also in Stanley Park.

Four coyotes have been euthanized by the Conservation Officer Service as of July 15. After the most recent incident, the CO Service noted that "Patrols are expected to continue for several days. COs are working to locate and euthanize the specific coyote in the latest attack."
