Thread Name: BS: a fisher-cat thread
Subject: RE: BS: a fisher-cat thread
I've seen a fair few in my days passed. Just so happens I saw a video last week posted in a Facebook group of a fisher chasing down a rabbit. They were on snow on a plowed woods road. I had NO idea fishers could run that fast. It was a long chase and the fisher was slowly gaining on the rabbit. The rabbit tried to cut and run into the woods but, to my utter amazement, the fisher was faster in the snow. So... old rabbit?... poor health? Even so, the fisher was impressive. NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART! The caption says "Marten" but it's a fisher...

I once saw a fisher at a fresh set of moose guts and coyotes came in. They were upset but the fisher had his fill before he left them to it so they didn't get much. Again, impressive to say the least.
