Foxes with mange?

I need advice. For 3 years I've had a family of foxes visit our garden, some of which I have treated successfully for mange with the help of the Fox Welfare Society. My neighbor saw a different fox with advanced mange in her garden and called the RSPCA. who set a trap and caught one of our foxes by accident. The officer told her that the cub had the start of mange (which is treatable) and said they now dont treat mange in foxes and would have to put it to sleep. She actually shot the cub with a pistol in view of my 10 year old and reset the trap to catch the rest. This needs to stop. So angry.
