Re: mange on yotes

Mange is caused by mites and the female can actually burrow into the skin. It is seen mainly when the population gets too heavy in an area and that is one way that Mother Nature kills off the weaker ones. A dead one should not be handled because the mites can live on a human and cause real problems. I was just watching a guy on TV shoot coyotes and one he shot had lost almost half it's hair. He didn't even touch the thing, but dug a hole and buried it pretty deep, so other animals couldn't get at it and become infested. Coyotes have certain barks and howls they use to communicate and sometimes they will come in to that type of call, rather than an animal in distress call.

Re: mange on yotes

A little more mange info... It is species specific. The mites that cause mange on coyotes won't cause mange on humans or dogs. The mites may get on ya but they won't cause your hair to fall out. That said, I wouldn't touch one of the things either. They creep me out. If you listen to their conversations closely, the guys on Fast and Furious buried the mangey coyote so other coyotes wouldn't pick up the mites.

Some times coyotes will howl when you're busted--they've made you. They announce to every other coyote in the neighborhood that someone's up to no good. Other times they will howl in answer to your howl and not come because you're outside of their territorial boundary. If that's the case, move closer to them and make another set. Another thing to be aware of is coyotes (at least in this area) tend to go downwind when coming to howls. It's like long raange butt sniffing. Make sure you can see your downwind if you're using howls otherwise they will bust you without you ever seeing them. "Make 'em show themselves if they want the downwind."

Good luck!

Re: mange on yotes

The problems I was referring to was not that a human would lose hair, etc., but can be a host and lead to an infestation in their dog(s). I thought I heard the guy say something about dogs and other varmints in their talking, but I may be mistaken. Any time you set up for coyotes, bobcats, or fox you should try to pick a spot where you can watch as they try to get downwind of your set to get your scent. If you don't they will nail you and be gone before you even see them if you don't.
