About a year ago, something was killing the chickens Mike Dugan had roaming his property in the Delair section of Pennsauken. One morning last summer, his girlfriend, Allison Rosenfeld, and a friend spied a mystery critter. "We were like, 'What the heck is that?' " Rosenfeld, 43, said. "It moved like a rat, but larger. It moved like a mean animal. " When it saw them, it turned bushy-tail and ran, she said. Later, an Internet search led them to an animal called a fisher cat. Flash-forward to about a week ago. Word of possible fisher sightings in Pennsauken began circulating on social media.

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.

"While this animal's natural habitat is much farther north than Pennsauken, the Township is currently looking into this matter to confirm or deny this claim's validity," the website says, adding, "Any issues regarding animal control in Pennsauken Township should be directed to 856-663-3058.

READING - Jesse Biddle's 16 strikeouts over seven one-hit innings last month in a game at Harrisburg went viral. His 10 strikeouts in six one-hit innings the next time out at home against New Hampshire made the masses wonder whether the 21-year-old from Germantown Friends was close to being big-league ready. A reality check followed for the gregarious double-A Reading lefthander, who is clearly on the right track but still a distance away from being prepared for games in the big South Philly ballpark where the Phillies play.
