You may have heard about the Fisher Kat. Perhaps you even read the story that they had a little bit of an attitude in the article Fisher Cats in Massachusetts may be Killing Pets. Even though they seem a bit scary to people who heard about that, the baby Fisher Cats (or Kits) are sweet and cute as can be. Lets just forget about what they might grow up to be. Haha.
The Fisher Cat was listed as an endangered species in 1998. But, are now coming back into the world. Especially when nice people like the ones at Northwest Trek Wildlife Park who took in two orphan Fisher Cat brothers. Their mother had died (reportedly) when killed by a Bobcat. Meaning, they would have died without the help of NTWP.
These two babies have been taken care of since June of 2010. But, Friday, Oct. 15th they were released into the Olympic National Park near Hurricane Ridge. 90 Fisher Cats have actually been brought to the Olympic Park to try and save them, and keep them from completely going extinct.
I think this is just the coolest thing. They might be a little mean as they get older, but that’s why we should stay away from them and let them be. Maybe they’re so mad because they are not many of them due to people killing them for their fur.
