19-year-old Taylor Mitchell died after being attacked by two coyotes in Cape Breton highlands National Park, Canada, according to CBC News. She was attacked Tuesday afternoon while walking alone on a popular hiking trail.

Park officials say that other hikers managed to scare off the coyotes and call 911. Mitchell, who was taken to the hospital in Cheticamp, then airlifted to Halifax in critical condition, later died from her injuries.
