This undated photo provided by the National Park Service shows an orphaned fisher that was born in Olympic National Park after its mother was killed by a bobcat, while being fostered at Northwest Trek, in Eatonville, Wash., before later being released back into the park. Wildlife officials reintroduced 90 fishers to the Olympic peninsula a few years ago, and are now preparing a plan to possibly reintroduce more of the cat-sized, forest-dwelling carnivores to Mount Rainier and North Cascades national parks as early as 2015. The fishers, which feed on small mammals, including snowshoe hares, mountain beavers and porcupines, have been missing from the region since the mid-90s.
