Budding Toronto folk singer dies after coyote attack

19-year-old was on break from her first tour


Singer-songwriter Taylor Mitchell was only 19 and had just released her first CD, a collection of tunes showcasing a precocious voice and, in the juxtaposition of folk genres, a youthful search for her own sound. On Tuesday, while taking a break from her first tour of the Maritimes, Mitchell, a lover of the outdoors, took a hike alone on the Skyline Trail, in Cape Breton Highlands National Park, where she encountered two coyotes. Mitchell lost so much blood as a result of the attack that she died the following day.
