Capture anything interesting on your handheld or trail camera? A nice buck, bear, coyote or anything unique? We’d love to see it. Each week, we’ll run a photo from a reader’s trail camera on the Sunday Outdoors page. Email your photo, along with date and area it was taken (township is fine) and any other details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a cruel side to nature, one that is often masked by the beauty that abounds. This red fox is a good example of what can happen when a population is left unchecked. Robert Krull of Swoyersville took this photo of a red fox that appeared in his backyard with a bad case of mange in February. Mange is a skin disease caused by mites and it is easily spread through a population via contact. It’s more common where high densities of foxes occur, and unfortunately it is usually fatal.
