skinny tailed squirrrels

I see two squirrels in my yard with weird tails: the hair is stripped off. Is this indicative of a disease?

Hi, Jan! I'm thinking since it's mating season the squirrels are probably missing their tail fur from fighting instead of a disease. I had a couple of males in my yard last summer with bare tails and their fur grew back.
