Fishers in Mass

Massachusetts trappers registered the second highest total of fishers ever in the state last year and it appears they’ll have a good chance to break that mark this season.

A Boston Globe article reports that officials at the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife “are anticipating a record-setting number of captured fishers” during this year’s season, which begins Nov. 1.

The rising population of fishers has even started to cause problems in urban settings, including some instances of cats and dogs being killed. This is another example of a good opportunity for trappers to help control animal populations, receive good news coverage, improve the public perception of trapping and do what we do best: trap.
