It's A Fisher Cat

The other day, I posted about this mysterious mammal across the road in the beaver bog. It was confirmed on Sunday and Monday by a biologist, teachers, Vermonters and students: this is a fisher cat. I had several offers from folks to come shoot it but it was pointed out to me that the fisher most likely is hungry because the snow is so deep. As the snow pack recedes, it will probably return to its normal territory. Sure enough, this photo was the last sighting. 

It was also pointed out to me many times that I am running a fisher cat luncheonette (the favorite food of fisher cats? Kitty cats.)

  1. Wow, a real Fisher cat! That's very interesting. I hope your cats stay far, far away from him. I am very scairt just looking at him.

  2. My sister had one in her back yard the eviscerated a raccoon. I only know this because my dachshund found the suffering raccoon. We called the police (fish and game were off) and they came and put the poor animal down.

  3. I've never heard of a fisher cat. That's interesting.

    Thank you for visiting me recently. Sorry I've so late responding.

  4. Who could have known such a cute looking animal ( could be so vicious when grown up to attack pets. Gosh!! That's scary!
