At the 1,000 acre Stanley Park in British Columbia, a man riding his electric scooter on Sunday evening apparently didn’t see a coyote along the trail and accidentally crashed into it. The impact caused the man to fall off his scooter, and as he fell to the pavement and injured his collarbone, that was not to be the worst of his troubles.

According to CbcNews, two other coyotes, likely in the pack of the injured animal, attacked the man biting at his jacket and his clothing. The man was able to fend off the animals and ran into the road, flagged down a passerby and called for emergency help.

B.C. Emergency Health Services responded to the call and transported the victim from the seawall area between Lumbermen’s Arch and the Lions Gate Bridge to the hospital where the man is reported to be in stable condition.

Coyotes often appear between dusk and dawn searching for food. Citizens are encouraged not to leave food out for wildlife or other stray animals.
