Mangy Fox

We spotted a fox in our pasture. It was being dived upon by birds as it appeared to be eating something on the ground – likely a nest. Close examination revealed the fox looked mangy – loss of hair on it’s tail and rib cage; poor overall condition with hip extruding and ribs visible. Apparently there are drugs (like Ivermectin) that treat the mange mites, if one can drug an affected animal.
