What is mange?
Mange will be an ongoing issue as mangy animals will move into the area looking for water and grass as they get sicker. We call these guys ‘travellers’. We are now looking at expanding into other properties in the area in our efforts to eradicate the deadly mange in wild wombats. This includes the ‘Treatment of Mange’ course we hosted in March 2009, the distribution of leaflets locally, and wherever we go to show that it can be treated. We constantly give out, or mail our treatment kits, so we know that the mange is treatable message is spreading.
Mange in wild wombats can be treated with a simple flap, and a weekly treatment. Please note this is not allowed in some states without a Veterinarian’s advice. We are always happy to talk to anyone with mange or wombat or any wildlife issues. Warwick & Dianna 02 48435933
