DANVILLE (CBS SF) — A coyote suffering from mange that prompted a search for the animal was hit and killed by a car in Danville, wildlife officials said.
Video had caught the animal roaming around the town.
Wildlife Emergency Services had been trying to track the animal in hopes of taking it to a wildlife hospital for treatment, but the animal eluded capture.
Mange is a skin disease caused by mites. Wildlife officials planned to send the body to a state lab for testing.
