  • Biologist Confirms Fisher Cat Sighting

    She saw the small, dark brown creature again, and this time got a picture.

    Laurie Borst captured digital images in mid-March of a narrow dark-bodied animal with a long, bushy tail walking through her yard in Sandy Hook. “I know my nature,” she said.  “This is a fisher cat.”

    Wildlife Biologist Paul Rego, with the Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area (WMA), in Burlington, Connecticut looked at Ms Borst’s photo via email and confirmed that the animal “is a fisher.”
