"Fisher cat" is a complete misnomer. The fisher does not fish, and it is a member of the weasel - not cat - family... Even though fishers are active both day and night throughout the year, one doesn't come across them all that often... Fishers are solitary animals, relatively shy and secretive...
Fishers have a long and tumultuous history in New England... [T]hey were extirpated over most of the area due to overtrapping (their fur has always demanded a high price) and loss of habitat.
[I]n the late 1950s... they were reintroduced in several states, including Vermont and Connecticut...
