I was hunting for newts when my dog
noticed and treed a fisher. This was a
new experience for me....never seen one
before except dead by the road. It was
a bit smaller than a river otter and was
an excellent climber. I'm glad a confrontation
was avoided since Ajax would've gotten the
worst of it. Fishers are one of the only
animals that will kill and eat porcupines.

Yes, I'm aware of their reputation.

I snapped a few shots and took the
dog and left. Probably it was napping
and we startled it.

I was afraid the little poplar it climbed
would snap off and I'd have a REALLY
annoyed fisher on my head. Not good.

Nice pictures. I have heard the Fishers are really mean little devils and the town near where I lived claimed that they were eating domestic cats for a while.
