Study done by Scott Lapointe and Roland Kayes
From News Article: "This winter I’m on the track of an urban weasel in Albany — the fisher.
These six-to-13-pound members of the weasel family started moving into
urban areas 10 years ago, and have been quietly hunting their squirrel
and rabbit dinners here ever since... we got our first camera-trap photograph of an Eastern fisher moving
through suburban Albany (in 2000). In a century the Northeastern fisher had gone
from wilderness animal to suburban predator...
Our approach is to document the ecology and behavior of fishers living
in the urban forests of the Capital District, a triangle of suburban
development with Albany, Schenectady and Troy, N.Y., as its points. In
particular, we want to see how the animals move through and connect the
small forest fragments, avoiding speeding cars and still finding enough
food. We will then contrast this with what we find in a population of
“wild” fishers living about 20 miles away in the forests around Grafton
Lakes State Park and Pittstown State Forest."
