i didnt see any when we were out there. we almost took did that trail too.. but its a 5 hours journey and we didnt have time. this place is within a park.. so i wonder if there is habituation issues. would be interesting to look into that before i go back out there.
they were still around the girl when the park ranger and the RCMP showed uo. they shot one, but couldnt find the body, and they were sending out a search party today to find them. The people who called the police and the park rangers were throwing rocks at them but they wouldnt leave the girl they were attacking.
i guess there has been coyote attacks there before.
the attack happened and passers by heard her screams.. so they called the 911.. they threw rocks at the coyotes while they waited. the park people came from Cheticamp which isnt far away they were there fast but were unarmed. they couldnt really do much. I guess they stopped attacking but wouldnt leave the girl.. so no one could help her.. the RCMP were there shortly after and shot one of the animals. and they all ran off.
Early reports were saying that she was going to pull threw cuz her blood pressure was going back up, but i guess it wasnt enough. it really is a sad story..
