To examine outbreaks of mange in raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) with respect to population density, we analyzed camera trap videos, and isolated mites from raccoon dog carcasses. In a camera trapping survey, we categorized the skin condition of raccoon dogs, and used a number of independent videos to calculate the relative abundance index (RAI). The RAI of raccoon dogs with alopecia increased following an increase in the RAI of those without alopecia. Among 27 raccoon dog carcasses, 12… Expand
Epidemiological study of sarcoptic mange in raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides albus) in Hokkaido, Japan
TLDR
The increased population density might have resulted in the incidence of sarcoptic mange in raccoon dogs, and sarcoptics mange possibly impacted raccoon dog population density. Expand
Sarcoptic Mange: An Emerging Panzootic in Wildlife.
TLDR
This review synthesizes the current knowledge concerning the geographic and host taxonomic distribution of mange in wildlife, the epidemiological connections between species, and the potential threat of sarcoptic mange for wildlife conservation and proposes a new agenda for the study of sarcoptes scabiei in wildlife. Expand
Association of sarcoptic mange with kinship and habitat use in raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides)
TLDR
Although it was difficult to predicate because the mortality rate was unclear in this study, kinship contact does not seem to be an important factor for sarcoptic mange epizootic, and direct/indirect contact between individuals living closely together is an important factors for the transmission of S. scabiei.

MOLECULAR SURVEY OF BARTONELLA ROCHALIMAE IN JAPANESE RACCOON DOGS (NYCTEREUTES PROCYONOIDES VIVERRINUS)
TLDR
Sequence analysis indicated that Japanese raccoon dogs in the area examined were infected with B. rochalimae carrying identical sequences in the rpoB and ssrA genes, and the raccoon dog strain had few sequence variations in both genes compared to other known B. robinae strains detected in other parts of the world. Expand
Gastrointestinal Helminths of a European Moose Population in Poland
TLDR
The findings indicate an accumulation of parasite infections over time in moose, which may be related to high environmental parasite pressure, possibly connected with high moose density and the presence of wetlands; they serve as the most comprehensive study of moose parasites in central Europe to date. Expand
Examining multiple paternity in the raccoon dog (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Japan using microsatellite analysis
TLDR
The present study is the first to report the possibility of multiple paternity in wild raccoon dogs, and two out of three litters had three or four paternal alleles at one or five microsatellite loci. Expand
Patterns of parasite eggs, oocysts and larvae shedding by moose in the Biebrza marshland (NE Poland)
The study analyses patterns of endoparasite eggs, oocysts and larvae shedding by moose from the relict population in the Biebrza marshland, NE Poland, which has grown to be one of the largest inExpand
Possible transmission of Sarcoptes scabiei between herbivorous Japanese serows and omnivorous Caniformia in Japan: a cryptic transmission and persistence?
TLDR
The close genetic relationships among mites beyond Host–taxon relationships and without obvious predator–prey interactions in Caniformia and Japanese serow deviate from previously reported S. scabiei transmission patterns, suggesting these populations may exist in local mammalian communities worldwide and become a risk factor for the conservation of the remnant and fragmented populations of wild mammals. Expand
Factors affecting the spread of parasites in populations of wild European terrestrial mammals
TLDR
The current state of knowledge on the factors affecting parasitic diseases in wild mammals inhabiting the European continent is summarized and indicates the need to further development, not only for academic reasons, but also for the benefit of use in management of wild mammal species and disease control in nature.

Mange caused by Sarcoptes scabiei (Acari: Sarcoptidae) in wild raccoon dogs, Nyctereutes procyonoides, in Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan.
TLDR
The enzootic dermatitis of wild raccoon dogs in recent years was clearly demonstrated to be caused by S. scabiei in the present study. Expand
New techniques for an old disease: sarcoptic mange in the Iberian wolf.
TLDR
Necropsy data, with alopecia as the main feature and a slight effect on body condition, and trends derived from camera trapping coincided in showing a rather low prevalence and an apparently stable situation of the disease and its host, suggesting that this parasite is currently not a major threat for this wolf population.

Epidemiology of sarcoptic mange in free-ranging raccoon dogs (Nyctereutes procyonoides) in Yokohama, Japan.
TLDR
It is found that the number of dogs rescued due to car accidents and other reasons increased from 1989 onwards, and an S. scabiei outbreak was recorded since 1993, and the infestation spread immediately from the southern to the northern regions of Yokohama since 1993. Expand
Sarcoptic mange in wildlife
TLDR
The pathogenesis and concordant clinical symptoms of mange depends on the immune status of the respective host, and isolation and treatment of infected individuals may be warranted, and has met with some success in small remaining populations of certain highly endangered species. Expand

TLDR
This is the first report to provide a genetic evidence of Sarcoptes transmission between domestic and wild mammals in the natural environment and demonstrated that the host specificity at the 9 microsatellite-level could not be confirmed. Expand

TLDR
The study provided clear evidence that CDV was the cause of the disease and it is possible that the masked palm civet introduced the infection into the raccoon dog population. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that heterologous populations of monospecific S. scabiei are expanding their populations and distributions regardless of host species in an apparently local mange epizootic of wild mammals in Japan. Expand

TLDR
In adult females, condition mostly affects annual variation in litter size at birth, whereas, in young females, it affects the regional variation in the proportion of reproducing females. Expand
