  • Vancouver man on scooter collides with coyote

Police in Vancouver say a 44-year-old man who fell off his electric scooter when it collided with a coyote fought off two more of the animals while he lay injured.

Sgt. Steve Addison says the man was riding on the Stanley Park seawall around midnight Sunday when he hit the coyote.

Addison says two other coyotes began tugging at the man's jacket and clothes as he was lying on the ground.

The man punched one of the animals, then waved over a passerby who called 911.

Addison says the man injured his collarbone.

WildSafeBC says the Conservation Officer Service gets more than 1,000 reports regarding coyotes every year.
