Fox Update #3

M2E64A35L0-182.2050018-71.6409988

I was worried because it didn’t appear for two nights but last night it was back and that was the night we gave it the third dose of Imervictin.  I really don’t see any difference so I plan to give it a fourth dose in another ten days, if it is still coming.  I have very mixed emotions about this after hearing the results of the Piping Plover monitoring I have been involved in for the past several years.  This year at least one exclosure was predated by a fox and the nest was lost.  These are endangered birds and foxes are not endangered but mange is a brutal, painful way for an animal to die so I plan to continue.
