Damn this old fur (please excuse the fox lingua)
The fox that lives close to our house is having problem with last year’s fur. It’s changing into a bright red summer fur, itchy process!
Half way through. Brownish-gray old fur and new sparkling red. The tail looks quite unhappy a.t.m., no much fur at all.
ETA: I have looked closer at the pictures and also read about Sarcoptes scabie. It seems quite clear to me now that this fox is in fact very ill and will probably die. So it’s not at all a funny thing any more. In fact, I hope the hunters in the village will shoot him. We has foxes with this parasite some ten years ago, but I had forgotten what it looks like.
