Police around the Chicago suburbs are warning residents to not come into contact with the "Zombie Dogs".


These so called 'dogs' are not lost pets that are neglected and malnourished that the residents have been seen roaming the neighborhoods.

These are actually coyotes that have succumb to sarcoptic mange, according to this NBC Chicago and the Hanover Park Police Department facebook page.

"The departments says infected coyotes will appear “mangy,” often hairless and haggard. “These infected animals are not normally aggressive, but should be avoided at all times,” the department says. “Please DO NOT approach these animals or allow your pets to approach them.”

Aww... poor coyotes. I feel bad for them.They look terrible and I bet they feel as bad as they look.
