I bet she could have escaped the coyote had she been on an ATV.
Obviously, had the hiker been carrying some form of self defense (a sidearm), this tragic occurance would not have ended as it did. BUT in Canada - you're not allowed to take self defense into your own hands. Call 911 and wait to die.
Time for a coyote bounty, cull and kill. Drive them back from human settlement and let them fear mankind.
here should be calls or a bounty in place...as well on the the "sea coyote" the seal.

The coyotes' outward migration began about a century ago. They moved east and west, filling the ecological vacuum left by human efforts to eradicate wolves from the lower 48 states. Coyotes expanded west first, toward California. Eastward expansion began a few decades later, along two routes, one due east and southeast, through the Gulf States, and the other northeast, into Canada, and eventually down into New England and along the East Coast. Wildlife biologists believe that the coyotes now showing up in the Washington area may be part of both eastward migrations: the smaller, Western coyotes -- 20 to 35 pounds -- of the due-east migration; and larger coyotes from the Canadian migration. Coyotes in this second group weigh 35 to 50 pounds, because of interbreeding with Canadian wolves.
