What a flap, what a noice coming from my birds and the strangest whap-whap sound, creak of metal and the a riot of hounds at the windows, the guard goose was in full scream/honk mode, the birds where in ulta freak out, and out I went with, a “WHATTTTTT!| and here was the answer trying to break into my rabbit hutch, which just happens to be right beside the big bird pen.. in fact its attached to it to help prevent it from moving in really bad storms and high winds.
Snagged this photo from the Wikipedia, cuz I was to busy reacting and chasing, it was a very small Fisher, and from what I have read and heard this is about the time that the young ones head off on their own, so I am guessing this is either a) a young one, or b) a female as it was of female size.
I really startled it, it was half hanging down on the rabbit hutch trying to break into a door, and it got a pan thrown at it and driven down the lane and back into the wooded forest where it belongs.. I would love to tell you I put a little buckshot in it behind but alas, its a protected creature in our neck of the woods.
To be honest, It totally freaked out and was very sure it didn’t want to mess with me and just wanted to get as far away as possable, lets hope that it does not come back, but I will set up the trail camera to see if it does, and then if need be a live trap can be set up and I can call to have it removed and taken away.
