Conservation officers search for coyote that bit jogger in Vancouver's Stanley Park

·1 min read

VANCOUVER — The Conservation Officer Service says it is investigating a case involving another aggressive coyote in Vancouver's Stanley Park.

A statement posted on social media says a woman suffered minor injuries when she was bitten on the leg while jogging along the seawall on Wednesday night.

It's the latest in a series involving confrontations between humans and coyotes in the park.

A toddler needed treatment in hospital after being bitten earlier this month when a coyote pounced as a group of people walked in the park at around dusk.

The service says officers plan to patrol Stanley Park for the next several days, searching for the coyote in the latest case.

Four coyotes linked to previous attacks have been destroyed.
