More on Scruff, the Orphan Fawn

Scruff, a white tailed fawn, is eating from the goat food.

Scruff is back. I see him every few days. Several times I have surprised him coming around the corner of the house as he is eating the chicken or the goat food.

He has lost his spots and he is traveling alone.  The wound on the back of his head between his ears has healed but the hair has not yet grown back. You can see that area on the neck  just below his ears.

Hair loss is still visible on the back of the neck

Since I have been observing the deer at PsiKeep, especially after discovering Scruff, I have noticed another smaller fawn with hair loss in the same area on the back of its head. This hair loss is in roughly a circular area about the size of a silver dollar. The fawn is traveling with its mother and another larger fawn.

I am wondering if there is a mange infection that is appearing in the local herds of deer. I checked online and there seems to be a mange infection on the East Coast but no reports of it in California. If I see another deer with the same condition I think I will contact Fish and Game to see if this is something spreading in the deer population in this area.
