There are fishers in WA, on the Penninsula, or were some ten years ago.  Game Dept. trapped some in BC and released them.  I never saw one but saw their unmistakeable tracks in snow several times.  Haven't seen any lately.

Fishers have an odd gait when travelling, kind of a quartering sideways lope, like a plane crabbing into the wind.  Any set of four tracks is set off I'd guess 20-30 degrees from the direction of travel.  Very distinctive if you see enough tracks to show the pattern and not just one paw print.


Good to know! Thanks for the gait info. I never bothered with looking into them as I did not think they were here. I will be watching for them now.

On reviewing the video and second thoughts, it definitely is a ChupekabraÖ

I donít think Fishers are supposed to be in Washington. Long and short tailed Weasels, Mink and Otter abound though.

They are in Washington both from recent planting and a few holdovers that managed to survive people encounters.
