Fisher – A Weasel with a Very Long Tail!

Commonly referred to as a “fisher cat”, the fisher is a cat-sized member of the Weasel family. This Delaney fisher has a lot of fattening-up to do to prepare for winter. Seen here in late summer, the fisher’s tail looks completely out of proportion with the rest of its sleek body.

If you spend any time at all tracking at Delaney in the winter, you’ll come across the fisher’s trail in the woods.
