Seems as if it’s the season of albinos. Just the other day, Clint Moen of Duluth brought home a partial albino pheasant from North Dakota. Now we have Stephanie Merrill’s photo of a fisher she trapped this fall in Carlton County. It may not be a pure albino, as some of the pigmentation in the fur appears to be light brown. John Erb, a furbearer researcher with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, says he hears of an albino fisher about once a year in either Minnesota or Wisconsin. This fall, he has also seen photos of albino muskrats and beaver. Merrill, of Wrenshall, said the fisher was a larger one, weighing about 11 pounds.
