Parks Canada is hosting four open houses in northern Cape Breton for residents and visitors to ask questions, share knowledge and express concerns about coyotes in the region.

Last October, a 19-year-old from Toronto was killed after being attacked by a coyote in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park in Ingonish.

Taylor Mitchell, 19, was a singer-songwriter who was touring to promote her new album on the East Coast. She was hiking solo on a trail in Cape Breton Highlands when the attack occurred.

The open houses are set for Neil’s Harbour, Ingonish, Cape North and Cheticamp.

The open houses are also an opportunity to learn about coyote behaviour and what people can do at home and in the national park to improve their personal safety and help reduce human-coyote incidents.
