Such is the cross that the fisher (known by some as the fisher cat) must bear. But how much of what we know about the fisher is fact and how much is fiction?

State biologist Chris Bernier and Deputy Fish & Wildlife Commissioner Kim Royar set the record straight on this elusive little predator and member of the weasel family.
