Two additional attacks were also reported to officers over the weekend.
On Friday, at approximately 6 am, a runner was bitten near Lost Lagoon. Later that day, a man was walking along the seawall near Lions Gate Bridge. He was bitten shortly after 9 pm.
Members of the public are strongly urged to stay out of Stanley Park and to exercise an abundance of caution while inside the park — especially around dawn or dusk, when coyotes tend to be more active.
