Animal of the day – 5/19/2011 – The Fisher Cat

Fisher Cat

The animal of the day is the Fisher Cat. (Did you know: I call shenanigans! This animal is not really a cat at all!

It’s actually a member of the weasel family that includes badgers, wolverines, and martens. Fisher Cats have actually been known on rare occasions to hunt domesticated house cats and small dogs!

Fisher cats are one of the VERY few animals that can kill and eat – wait for it – adult Porcupines! That’s gangsta!

I don't know what that Fisher Cat is hunting, but I don't envy it's lifespan...
