Welcome Back, Fisher!

We have had reports of a Fisher in the area. The Fisher is a small mustelid (a member of the weasel family) about the size of a large cat and has been seen in the area before. They are relatively rare animals and prefer to avoid humans but are seen from time-to-time near wooded areas.

Included below is a link to the Wikipedia entry for Fishers. They represent another example of the wonderfully diverse biological area in which we are fortunate enough to reside. If you happen to see a Fisher and are lucky enough to get a picture, please feel free to send it to us and we’ll post it on-line.
