Story of Rudy

Mange (small parasite) it is a big threat for lynxes and other wild animals (for example foxes and wolfs). Infected animals are losing almost whole hair and on their skin, wounds are appearing. Wounds and crusts, also on paw pads, makes animals unable to move (which means they are unable to hunt for food!). They die from sickness, hunger and exhaustion.

In such a bad condition, we found Rudy. Fortunately, our specialist manage to save him. Rudy received medicine and was rehydrated. First success came after some day, because He started eating. His health was getting better day after day and in December, we verify that ilnness was erradicated! Now all we have to do is to rebuild his physical condition, so according to plan, by 2 days, ashe will return to wild life!
