Cool Wildlife Bulletin
I saw a fisher cat yesterday. It was broad daylight - around 9:30 am - and it ran across the road in front of my car, no more than 8 or 10 feet from me. It looked just like this picture. Waaay cool.
Fishers are large martens - up to 4 feet - and they have been recorded preying on lynxes and bobcats, as well as house cats and other small mammals. So that's why The Cat of COG spends his nights indoors. According to online sources, they are elusive and nocturnal and, therefore, very seldom seen. So I was pretty lucky to see this one.
