A mysterious long-haired critter that's been sighted on the streets of a Bronx neighborhood for several months has a name.
It's a member of the weasel family called a fisher or fisher cat.
New Yorkers should be thrilled. Turns out the fisher preys on rats and squirrels, but is not a threat to humans.
Fisher trapping was banned in the 1930s. Kays says today the fisher population is booming in the Northeast and a trapping season has been reinstated.
