Live in MA   Have heard what people say is a fisher,  heard it the other night, might be a red fox, do have them in the back and have seen them, never seen a Fisher, neighbor said he saw one, with his dead cat. Don't know, but sound was chilling

I live in Rhode Island and fisher cats have been seen and heard in my area. I can't believe that Nat Geo got it sooo wrong. It does sound like a Tasmanian Devil!!!

Hello

Terry you have most certainly heard a fisher scream!.. I am shocked that a Nat Geo Wild video would post a video that is so misinformed!.. I have just watched and listen to a fisher scream at a Wildlife Rescue called Cape Wildlife Rescue.  They have a pair of Fishers on Video with a blood curdling screams that are at the rescue together. Please click on the following youtube link and you will see and hear for yourselves! :)
