WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Another sick red fox has been spotted in Greater Lafayette, this one at our own studio.
We previously reported on a Lafayette neighborhood concerned about several sightings of a red fox with severe mange.
The disease can be fatal and it's caused by certain parasites.
The Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center is urging people to call them if they see any native animals injured or sick around their property.
Don't give it food or water, and trap it only if you can do so safely and humanely.
Volunteers will instruct you how and where to take the animal.
"We can get them sedated in the live trap and they're stress free and we can do what we need to do to start the treatment," said owner of Wildcat Creek Wildlife Center, Carrol Blacketer.
Call the center at 765-491-2351 if you need any help.
You can also text the number.
