Game Camera Catches Elusive Fisher Cat on Video in West Virginia

A trail camera set in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia has captured the presence of an elusive fisher cat.

A trail cam set near Blackwater Falls in the Monongahela National Forest took a short but lasting video of a fisher roaming in the winter woods.

The video was taken earlier this year in February of 2015 and shows the animal looking healthy and active.

Monongahela National Forest is in eastern West Virginia and is located in the Allegheny Mountains.

At the 45-second mark, that fisher knew something was up with that camera. Never doubt the ability of wild animals to have a sixth sense and awareness about them.

Fishers are fond of eating things like red squirrels, grey squirrels, and are one of the few predators that will target porcupines!

They have a loud call some refer to as a “scream” and are prized for their fur where regulations allow legal trapping.
