鬃狼因蟎蟲患皮膚病

在巴西聖保羅州及米納斯吉拉斯州的邊界發現有些失去皮毛的鬃狼,經診斷後發現患上因家犬蟎蟲引發的皮膚病。當地主要因發展畜牧養殖及大豆種植等砍伐大量森林,鬃狼的棲息地減少,更縮短了與人類之間的距離,增加病毒感染的機會。

in Brazil, some maned wolves that live along the border between the states of São Paulo and Minas Gerais are losing their fur. they were diagnosed with skin disease caused by mites from domestic dogs. Human activities like soy farming and cattle ranching are causing deforestation in the areas; maned wolves are threatened by habitat lost; the chance of contact with human has increased and could result in virus infestation.
