Fisher cat, stuffed and mounted

Look at those teeth, those claws, those beady little eyes!

Near Fresh Pond, Wicked Local Cambridge alerts us. But don't worry:

There have been no reports of fisher cats attacking a person or domestic animal in Cambridge.

Ed. note: This is not the Fresh Pond fisher cat. This is the fisher cat Kevin Cosby hit with his car, then had stuffed and mounted.
