Species Identification Confidence:
I'm absolutely certain
Chris Klingler, Wildlife Technician on the Sawtooth National Recreation Area, observed an animal in mid-June that he suspected was a fisher. So he set up a camera and hair trap with lure near the observation to attempt to get hair and pictures. He collected the pictures and hair on 7/10/14. Three pictures show an animal that is most likely a fisher. A few hairs were obtained which will be sent to Rocky Mountain Research Station for analysis.
