Fishers (Martes pennanti) are medium sized mustelids with slinky-like bodies and dark fur. Despite the name, fishers seldom eat fish. Instead, their diets consist of small mammals, and are one of a handful of animals capable of preying on porcupines. Fishers were reintroduced to Wisconsin in the 1950s, and have done well in the state since then – so well, in fact, that Wisconsin fishers have been re-located for reintroduction efforts in other states.

#SuperSnap is a monthly blog feature and a way for us to share some of the best Snapshot Wisconsin photos! Hashtag your favorite photos for a chance to be featured in the next #SuperSnap blog post, and check out all the nominations by searching “#SuperSnap” in Talk.
