Whither Pennsauken's fisher cat?
Whether the big weasel with good hair ever really was roaming this part of Camden County, or still is, remained a mystery Wednesday. The township's website still had the same message that it did before the weekend - that town officials were trying to confirm or deny that the animal was afoot.
Fisher cats might be more common north of here, but there have been documented sightings of the known-to-be combative creatures in New Jersey in the last several years. Hunted in the 1700s and 1800s for their fur, fishers can grow to be about four feet long and weigh up to 20 pounds.
