Just a word of warning...you really don't want to handle these if at all possible. The condition is caused by the sarcoptic mite (Sarcoptes scabiei). They were not indigenous to North America and were introduced intentionally to kill off wolves and coyotes. This initially had a pretty good impact on the population, but as you might expect, there were survivors and animals more resistant to the mite that passed on their genes. Now, it is just a horrific menace, still can be fatal, but as we know, the coyote population is doing fine. The wolf population also recovered and was subsequently lowered by other meants.

The reason you don't want to handle these is because the mite can transfer to you and/or your clothing. It can result in a condition called 'scabies' in humans and can transfer to your furry pets.


That is actually very interesting. I found this article on it:

Introduction of Mange to Destroy Wolves in 1905 Montana

I psyched myself out. A couple of days after I noticed an odd rash on my right shoulder. eek

But after reading up on it, it takes 2 weeks for full scale scabies to kick in. peep

Out of the woods now so to speak.

The chupacabra or chupacabras (Spanish pronunciation: [t&#643;upa&#712;ka&#946;&#638;as], literally "goat-sucker"; from chupar, "to suck", and cabra, "goat") is a legendary creature in the folklore of parts of the Americas, with its first purported sightings reported in Puerto Rico.[1] The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, including goats.

Physical descriptions of the creature vary. It is purportedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.

Eyewitness sightings have been claimed in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile, and even being spotted outside the Americas in countries like Russia and the Philippines, but many of the reports have been disregarded as uncorroborated or lacking evidence. Sightings in northern Mexico and the southern United States have been verified as canids afflicted by mange.[2] According to biologists and wildlife management officials, the chupacabra is an urban legend.[3]

Mangy coyote would be my guess, killed one a year ago at first light, was using a call and it came within 30'. Didn't dare touch it. a week later all that was left was the skull, the rest was gone.
