The St. Joseph Department of Public Safety has said a fox is roaming the area with mange mite disease. It was last seen on Monday by Lakeshore Drive. Berrien County Animal Control has been informed of the fox, trying to live trap it, but has had no luck yet. Animal Control has said that the fox should die by fall as the skin disease progresses, but that the fox might try to find shelter or food closer to homes. If you see it, you are encouraged to call Animal Control, as aggravating it may cause aggression.
