Welcome to BYC! You need to act quickly or there is a very good chance he will die. Can you bring him inside where it's warm?

He did die that evening and I convinced his owner to weigh him and do a necropsy. Body weight was only 1200 grams. Normal weight for a male this age is 2400-3200 grams.

 

Here are the necropsy pictures:

 

This shows how thin he was

 

Probable blackhead lesions

These are amazing photos! I'm kind of jealous on the quality of the photos.
