First reported as zombie dogs roaming the burbs of Chicago, later confirmed as coyotes with mange.
Coyotes with mange are being confused with stray pets in Chicago suburbs, Hanover Park police said.
People have reached out to police with concerns about what they think are malnourished or neglected stray dogs. The sarcoptic mange causes the coyotes to lose some hair and develop infections, police said. Eventually, they end up looking like some kind of “zombie” dog.
The infections impact their eyesight, which has led these normally nocturnal animals to become more active during the day.http://www.bnd.com/news/local/article170644517.html
