Default Coyote Condition

Do you occasionally see coyotes in your area with mange?

in the past 25+ yrs in my area of PA I have never seen one yet,
BUT I have seen a few foxes that had it
However when out west(ND/SD MT WY) I have seen quit a few coyotes there that had it!

PA< seems to be having issue
's with bears getting it too, but have yet to see that on my area bears, and hope I never do!
as thats a sad way for a bear to die, or honestly any other critter, not a fast death at all!

Nasty critters, specially once they get mange.

We knew this one was in the area because we had seen it on SandburRanch and amazing it was still alive, with sub-freezing temperatures in January, until a small hunting party put it out of its misery at DollyRanch close by.

Yeah, we see coyote's and red foxes with mange. Some years are worse then others. Saw a black bear a couple years ago that looked like he had mange. 2/3 of his fur was gone from the back working forward. He got a pass needless to say.

I haven't seen any coyotes with mange out here in Utah, although I don't doubt it happens.
