I do not think the mange coyotes travel as far, from what I have seen and from talking with other ADC guys. Constantly eating. more so than a healthy coyote. they can run a fever when the sores get infected. I have seen fox that appeared as if they were blind. The bad ones you can watch at a distance and tell right away that they mange from the constant scratching. they do not ever sit still.

One thing that may lead a mangey coyote to poor dental health is the fact that they are usually on carcasses, old carcasses hard boned etc. bustin and wearing teeth more than a coyote hunting out in the open. Mangey ones hang on dead piles and are mostly scavengers, no energy in the ones with scarpotic mange, but others with other types of mange, lice, seem to fair better and some even recover. If it was so quick and deadly this mange epedemic would be long gone, long ago. The thing I see more than not is mangey coyotes having pups and the pups coming down with what looks like parvo and dieing soon after the have whelped. This parvo remains in the soil, ask a vet if you have ever had it in your domestic dog. I have heard that it may disappear in the soil in severe dry conditions.

The bottomline is a mangey coyotes immune system is weakened, and it may lead to weakened teeth bones etc from it's diet etc. Like a human if a disease is contracted many times that disease isn't the killer it usually is a complication from that disease that effects other things in the body.

So Randy what you are saying is that the teeth may not be directly because of the mange, but more like a side affect caused by the fact that they can't hunt as well? That would make sense.

I would agree pretty soon the infections take over every part of the body and the total health of the body goes down speeding up as the process goes on longer
