♥ Something evil is lurking in the woods of Connecticut these days, something ancient and almost forgotten. You can hide your children and lock up your pets, but even then all may be lost.  For there is no stopping the fisher cat!  Okay, so maybe they aren't all that bad, but it is true that the fisher cat is back in full force in CN.  The fisher is neither a fish, a fisher, or a cat: it's a relative of the North American marten.

FISHER CATS - Found in the U. & Canada, like gigantic weasels. They take down chickens, cats, dogs. Not an animal i want but i would watch out for.
