Re: Possum threat. Kill it or leave it

If you are concerned about a threatening animal, call animal control.

Doesn't sound like an opossum (definitely not a possum, those are only native to Australia) I doubt they would attack other animals like that.

Zoo Nanny could be right about the fisher. Even though some people call them "Fisher Cats" they are not cats. They are in the weasel family. I have only seen a dead one on the road, and they are huge compared to most weasels. One of the only animals brave and cunning enough to take on porcupines successfully.

Here's what a Fisher looks like.

I would need to know what province you are in to be sure, they are not native to all of Canada. If you live out west, could have been a Badger.
