I see . But they reintroduced wolves of a different strain ( Canadian) and they act completely different then the wolves that were native ( from what I read and understand) and they have done absolutely no good to any of our native species!would these Fisher be the same way especially since 2 different genetic gene pool have been introduced? I guess time will tell

One additional threat is worth focusing on: trapping. It is still legal to trap the Northern Rockies fisher in Montana even though their numbers are declining, and traps end up killing a large number of fishers in Idaho where there is no open season on the species. Traps set for other species such as martens and bobcats and, more recently, wolves, end up killing the rare fisher.  In Idaho a total of 22 fishers were captured and 15 died in traps set for wolves during 2011/2012 trapping season. Hence, the hatred for wolves and the unethical delisting of them under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) further imperils the Northern Rockies fisher. Itís a trickle down effect of the widespread intolerance for predators stemming from the sanitized landscape of livestock operations.

The obvious difference between WA and ID, MT is cage traps.  The chances of killing fisher in WA, worst case scenario, is still minimal.
Lynx lawsuits to stop trapping abound in other States but not in WA. We may hate the cages but it does give us a bit of immunity from ESA based lawsuits.
Also the lead person on fisher recovery has said publicly the ultimate goal is a trapping season for them because that will only come when they are fully recovered.

My position on it has always been, it is happening and we may as well embrace it. Better to be at the table then outside looking in.
