well dont trap but i see alot of mange out in manitoba back home in the pas dont know what it is but we had alot of yotes i shot everyone i saw request of the farmers and my own personal interest in taken them out but its nasty and i was wondering do you know what it does to humans the same thing? and what would a person do if they got it not knowing what it was and looking at a close one and moving it just wondering becausei moved out here and i have not seen a mangy one yet and i ask the kids/hunters if the yotes here had mange and they had never heard of it? funny i know

mange is some kind of mite, like a lice. people can catch mange and rabies. so don't touch a mangey k9.

yeah i dont touch them i just get my grandpas friend to get rid of it he has this sort of rubber suit but i do leave a mess of a yote with mange because i mostly see them when i am goose hunting soo i allways carry double aught buck shot with me to take them out at about 20 yards loll so yeah.

i've got a friend that traps less then five miles from me and never had a fox with mange this year. me 65%-70% of my reds had it.

Mange is species specific,meaning the mite that causes mange in a red fox does not cause mange in dogs/yotes. Grey fox do not get mange because their is not a mite that affects them. The mite can't move from one type of furbearer to another and live.
