Karen & John - Kingston, Ont

We live in a subdivision in Kingston Ontario and last evening when letting our dog out for his late evening constitution, we discovered a fisher on our deck. The adult fisher had torn the roof off of a birdhouse on the fence beside the deck and was in the process of eating the young house sparrows that were in the birdhouse. My wife screamed, shone a flashlight in it's eyes and the fisher quickly ran away. We were not sure what the critter was at first, he was larger than our 17 lb poodle. After searching the Internet, we are now sure that it was a fisher, the size, features, color, claws, all match. It was certainly a surprise to find this aggressive animal in the middle of a subdivision.
