What kind of diseases do wolves carry


What kind of diseases do wolves carry and how does it affect our wildlife and the outdoorsman who use the woods for recreation? Also what is the fish and game doing about the control of such known diseases?


There is information on our website at http://fishandgame.idaho.gov/public/wildlife/?getPage=209 about one of the most common wolf diseases.


 A wolf was recently found that died of parvovirus (similar to the parvo that effects domestic dogs).


If we suspect that a wolf's death is from disease a necropsy is done to figure out the cause.
