Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)

Journal Entry: Thu Jun 27, 2013, 11:40 AM


today it was the worst ZOO visit ever.
This spring I noticed that the molting (process of loosing the thick winter fur and having just much shorter summer fur) of the wolves is very different from the molting I witnessed during the last years. The wolves looked ill, like having scabs on their faces and bodies.
It made me nervous, so I was curious about my today's visit. I planned to shoot baby wolves.

What I saw shocked me.
ALL the pack members seem to have some skin problems. Less or more serious, all of them are effected, showing symptoms. I do not know if it is mange or so, but it looks horrible. Two wolves (and I am VERY afraid the most ill one is Atila) have almost bare bodies, they lost almost all the fur. All of them keep scratching. What a horrible, horrible sight, I almost cried there :( even the tiny puppy is ill, it was born just few weeks ago, but I see its legs show the signs of the same illness.
I hope the vets will find the cure.
I am soooo down since I saw them today :(

I post some photos of ill wolves: people, if you are sensitive or underage, consider if you REALLY want to scroll down to see the photos. They are really very very awfull :(

If i looked at those pictures again, without knowing what breed of canine they were, i wouldn't think they were wolves..
