All the members of the pack shows signs of this illness (mange or scabies?), some of them almost TOTALLY lost their fur. It was a terrible sight and I almost cried. Even this tiny puppy was scratching its head and its legs already showed symptomps...
It was terrible, terrible.
The journal with photos of ill wolves has been posted, but better do not look if you can not stand that sight. Go to my *woxys profile to see them, but consider it...
I think you know how much I love those wolves, I visit them since 2007 when they arrived... it is very hard for me too see them in this condition. Oh since I saw them today, I feel SO down.
I love wolves, hope I can see ones some day..!
I hope they find a cure soon, I've seen animals in my local zoo disappear after a short illness, and it never gets easier.
WE MUST HELP THEM!
sulfur dip. Most wolves have a recusant gene that make it easier to get mange. The one thing that is a sure fire cure is a sulfur dip. With mine and I know it not totally health for me as a human, I filled a kiddy play pool with water and the correct amount of sulfur. (this is from a vet they normally use it on cows) Just pour the dip over the wolf avoiding they eyes and inside the ears. With in a few days, the mange mites are dying and the wolves feel much better and the mange goes away.
Might want to pass that along.
I hope you are able to keep us all updated on this! I know I would appreciate it greatly.
