I recently took these photographs of a female Red Fox with Sarcoptic mange and Alopecia (hairloss). She also has lesions from scratching. Her long term prognosis is not good.

Although the photographs are not attractive, I'm posting them to make others aware of this problem.

My first photograph is my entry for the following:
