This is a discussion on This death might have easily been prevented (Merged) within the In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Canadian folk singer killed by coyotes, park official says - CNN.com...
This is a shocking story. I've heard of a couple instances where coyotes attacked small children, but to attack and kill an adult is really unusual.
But now as I think about it, when I lived in Washington State I heard stories of packs of coyotes killing large dogs, and even new-born calves.
So they are willing to take down larger 'prey'.

What a shame...and this can happen almost anywhere.
I don't understand why anyone would want to continue to live where the ability to defend yourself is illegal.

The US is one of the few places where there is a right (however hobbled or infringed) to use a firearm to defend yourself. That right is not available in most of the English speaking world other than the US.
People have limited choices in this regard, even in democratic countries where in theory the people could get the rules changed.
