Taylor Mitchell

I didn't photograph Taylor. I didn't know Taylor Mitchell. But when I heard her story, I felt compelled to pay tribute to her. I want as many people as possible to know about her and hear her voice.

Taylor was an upcoming singer/songwriter from Toronto. She was four days into her first tour of Eastern Canada on Tuesday when she went hiking in Cape Breton Highlands National Park and was attacked by two coyotes. She was found by other hikers, airlifted to a hospital but passed away from her injuries the following day.

Taylor Mitchell was only 19 years old.

August, 1990 – October 28, 2009

Please take the time to listen to one of her songs...

This is the news story...

this coyote attack is especially strange to me since I've lived around coyotes my whole life without any issues (in AZ) - they seem to be afraid of people

They, 'the experts', seem to be thinking it has something to do with the coyotes breeding with wolves.

Still, I think it's pretty rare. But sad just the same.
