I shot a coyote about 45 miles south of Delta Junction yesterday. It was about -25 so I didn't waste time getting it to the truck. This morning I was preparing to skin it and notice what I suspect is a slgiht case of mange. The under fur on the back just behind the hackles is matted and there appears to be a clump of skin tissue pulled up. I saw no open sores, but then again I'm not that wild about digging further. I heard at one time the Kenai wolves had it. This is my first encounter with it. Even if I had discovered this in the field I still would have removed the carcass as I don't want to spread the disease to anything that eats it. I would like to know if anyone else has encountered this here in Alaska. I am posting this in the hunting forum as well, sorry for the duplication. Thanks.
