Fox

A very severe case of mange, and looks emaciated, poor thing did not have a good life, especially at the end. What fur it has looks very red, I suspect it was only a young animal as well.

Notpop, I'm not sure which observation you mean; could you copy and paste the URL address (http://...../node/???) into a post so we can link to it please.
