The sound often attributed to a fisher is actually a fox.

We had one cross our backyard a few years back. It was pretty eerie. At first we thought it was a VERY weird cat. Body too long and legs too short -- and strange gait. But when it climbed up and over the fence (instead of jumping) we knew it was "something else" (and started looking up what it might actually have been).

And they are demonic.

More reasons to keep your dog leashed.

This is an animal that can eat a well-armed porcupine for breakfast without breaking a sweat. Not to be messed with

"While not common, fishers have also been known to kill wild turkeys."

LET THEM FIGHT!

The Turkey Liberation Front has a bounty on Fisher Cat pelts.
Don't bother trying to collect though.
The TLF doesn't recognize the U.S. monetary system.
They pay in tail feathers.
I think they're Turpublicans.
