Hanover Park Police Department posted the warning on its Facebook page, saying the coyotes – which are usually nocturnal – are infected with sarcoptic mange that causes them to be active in the day.

“Infected animals will often appear ‘mangy’ – which looks just like it sounds. They suffer hair loss and develop secondary infections, eventually looking like some sort of ‘zombie’ dog,” the department said. READ THE FULL POST AT FOXNEWS.COM.
