Image #W12 - Fisher Kits: Photographed in Clinton County Pennsylvania

The fisher is a large tree-climbing member of the weasel family that resembles a cross between a mink and a fox. Females average 6 pounds while the much larger males average 10 to 12 pounds. I believe the record for a fisher is 19 pounds (Maine). Fishers eat rodents, squirrels, porcupines and other small mammals. They are the most efficient predator of the porcupine. Fishers were reintroduced to Pennsylvania in 1994 after having been extirpated for well over 100 years. These elusive and seldom seen animals produce 1 to 5 offspring often referred to as kits.
