Conservation Officers are reporting another person bitten by a coyote in Stanley Park and ask people to avoid the area where the attack occurred.

In a statement on Facebook, the Conservation Officer Service said a man was bitten at approximately 7 p.m. PT Wednesday evening while jogging along the seawall, southeast of the Lions Gate Bridge.

The man was bitten on the right calf, the conservation service said, and was treated at hospital. Conservation officers arrived on the scene but could not find the coyote.

The conservation service said they will have an "enhanced" presence in Stanley Park Thursday to respond to any reports.

For now, the message is to stay away.

"If you are jogging along the seawall, there is a risk you may encounter an aggressive coyote," the statement read.

Well he couldn't carry a small hand gun and shoot it to get it to let go up there I don't believe. I have a few small 380s that are small enough there is never a reason not to have it. Had he not been restricted it would be dead and not running loose.
