    I wonder why article does not mention that it is curable even from an advanced stage with about 4 treatments every 5 days then 3 every 10 with ivermectin or psorinum 30c?

      Hi Larry, thanks for your comment.
      Treating wildlife is, unfortunately, not always possible considering the available resources and practical considerations. However, reports of mange in live foxes should be directed to PEI Fish and Wildlife: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/topic/fish-and-wildlife

        PEI F&W are useless as they will do nothing except, and to quote from a phone discussion with their chief biologist: ” We would euthanize with a 22 bullet to the head”. This when a simple, cheap treatment is available and is being used with success by several of us volunteers across the island since we did not realize that “Treating wildlife is, unfortunately, not always possible considering the available resources and practical considerations”. I’d be interested to know what those “available resources and practical considerations” limitations would be considering the taxpayer funded decent paycheques this bureaucracy receives.
