Fisher Cat!




After fishing through thousands of photos, a fisher cat turned up. (click to enlarge) Unfortunately these predators from the weasel family actually have a taste for house cats. Gulp. And they are tough enough to take out a porcupine. Another reason to be glad for remote photography. If you have a little time on your hands and a healthy curiosity about animals be sure to google the fisher cat. There are plenty of hair raising videos of the fisher's eerie cry. Yikes.

These are scary animals, if you ask me. I learned about them recently and hope we never meet in person! :-)

I love your trail cam photos! I wish I had one. It looks like you're in a beautiful place. I like your "Fuel" too. I don't like blackened fish very much either :)

I have never even heard of a Fisher Cat and I don't think I want to know. Awful!

Wow! I've never heard of a "fisher cat" before. I don't think I like them too much...
