Two children involved in Vancouver coyote attacks

Darpan News Desk The Canadian Press, 01 Sep, 2021 02:57 PM
  • Two children involved in Vancouver coyote attacks

The BC Conservation Officer Service says two children were involved in attacks by coyotes in Vancouver's popular Stanley Park overnight.

On Twitter, the service said it "cannot stress enough" that people should avoid the park, particularly during dusk and dawn, due to the rash of attacks.

It says one coyote that showed signs of "food habituation" was killed.

Conservation officers are patrolling the park and the service says it's working with provincial wildlife biologists to determine how to manage the animals.

About three dozen incidents between humans and coyotes have been reported in the park since last year and four other animals have been killed this summer.

The Vancouver Park Board announced this week that Stanley Park would be closed starting at 7 p.m. to keep people out while the animals are most active.

The conservation officer service recently reported attacks on Monday and last Friday.
