To the Editor:
I would like to thank the kind hearted woman in the SUV who saved a rather large bird in the middle of the road on the morning of April 11 around 8:15. It was right by the Exit 11 entrance ramp and traffic was very congested.
As I sat at the traffic light, I was able to witness her pick up the injured bird using a plastic bag and put it in her car to safety. The bird was scared and certainly, if it wasn't for its rescuer, it would have been hit again.

She saw the small, dark brown creature again, and this time got a picture.
Laurie Borst captured digital images in mid-March of a narrow dark-bodied animal with a long, bushy tail walking through her yard in Sandy Hook. “I know my nature,” she said. “This is a fisher cat.”
Wildlife Biologist Paul Rego, with the Sessions Woods Wildlife Management Area (WMA), in Burlington, Connecticut looked at Ms Borst’s photo via email and confirmed that the animal “is a fisher.”
