Taylor Mitchell, 19, was reportedly hiking by herself on Tuesday in Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Nova Scotia when the coyotes attacked her.

A hiker nearby heard Mitchell’s screams and called for help. Park rangers were alerted and reportedly shot one of the coyotes.

Taylor was airlifted to Halifax hospital but died from her injuries Wednesday.

Paul Maynard of Emergency Health Services said that Mitchell was already in critical condition when paramedics arrived on the scene and had multiple bite wounds over her entire body.

“She was losing a considerable amount of blood from the wounds,” he said.

The coyote that was killed has been sent for testing to try and find out what caused the coyotes to attack.

Coyotes are normally shy but the park had received a few reports of aggressive coyotes in the past. ,

The two coyotes were “extremely aggressive” when rangers arrived at the scene of the attack.

The entrance to the trail where Taylor Mitchell had been attacked has been blocked off as officials investigate the attack.

Mitchell was nominated this year for a Canadian Folk Music Award in the “young performer of the year” category and was considered an up-and-coming artist.

“Taylor was a brilliant and beautiful light that people were naturally drawn to,” Michael Johnston, who produced her debut CD, “For Your Consideration,” told the paper. “She was so young and talented — her big dreams were a perfect match with her big, kind heart.”
