Granite Ledge Township Homestead Wildlife

I haven’t posted in a bit, so I thought I’d just toss this one up.

Ian and Olivia, my son and daughter-in-law, recently purchased a home on several acres in Granite Ledge Township, Benton County, MN.  The lot is mostly wooded.  They received a wireless “security” cam set as a housewarming gift, and it captured some interesting things in their first months at the home.

SPOILERS BELOW – read after viewing:

The first critter is an opossum.  Little cutie.

In the second set of videos, the animal being chased is a feral house cat.  The chaser is a fisher, a large member of the weasel family.  It is sometimes called a fisher cat.  Unfortunately evidence suggests the fisher killed the feral cat very shortly after this video.

The third critters are a pair of big lumbering stinkers looking to put on some weight before a long winter’s nap.

Ian and Olivia are hosting a rather large Thanksgiving in their home and we’re all looking forward to attending soon.
