I saw my first fisher. I was going out to the coop around dusk and I hear a scratching sound in the swamp. I guess it was sharpening it's claws. I go to have a look n see and at first I thought mink. No, I think it was too big. I had no clue. It was a brown color with a black of dark tail. It was bigger than a cat. I asked my husband and he told me it was a fisher. I had never seen one before. He keeps the cat in at night now and my chickens are fenced in.. I hear they will attack and kill cats and chickens. I am wondering how to kill it. It's not like it's around like the fox. Fox are pretty easy to get. I thought maybe if we used the have a heart trap we might get it but hubby says no they are elusive and harder to get than a fox. Anyone ever had problems with them? And if so how did you get rid of it.
