      The trails around Prospect Point in Stanley Park are closed. And B.C. Conservation Officer Service staff are still on the lookout for a coyote that's lost its fear of humans.

      On July 7, three people were bitten in the park, starting with a man doing yoga around 8 a.m. in the picnic area.

      That was followed by a runner who was attacked on Park Drive.

      Then a woman who tried to help the runner was bitten on the arm in the leg.

      "All three adults were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries," the BCCOS stated on its Facebook page.

      Anyone who visits Stanley Park is being warned to be aware and prepared to encounter an aggressive coyote.

      "It is unknown at this time if this coyote is responsible for any other incidents at Stanley Park," the BCCOS stated. "COs believe there are multiple coyotes involved in incidents at Stanley Park."
