I snapped a picture of this Fisher (Martes pennanti) stealing my baseball glove! I chased this stocky weasel thinking it would drop the glove, but Fishers are so strong I never saw the glove again. Fishers are carnivorous but unlike their name) don't catch or eat fish. They may have been named by early Dutch settlers after the European Polecat known as the "Fitchet." Fishers are about the only successful predators of the Porcupine. So, does anybody have any ideas why the Fisher wanted the baseball glove?
