Fisher?


Last night after going swimming and checking the church to make sure it was locked up we pulled in just in time to see a lightening fast furry something streaking across our driveway. We just caught in in our headlights. It was long, black, and very fast. We looked at each other and asked, "what was that?!" I have never seen anything like it. It kind of looked like a black panther!
Dan thought that it might be a Pine Marten or a Fisher. I have never heard of either. After reading up on them we think it was a Fisher! A Fisher is a large dark brown to nearly black weasel-like animal with a bushy, tapering tail. White-tipped hairs give the animal a frosted appearance. Oh the night life!
