Saw some critter that was either a mink or a fisher on Mesa Canyon,looked like a big heavily furred cat but with more of a snout and pink nose,kind of a cinnamon color.

I am not wildlife expert either but I have not heard of Fisher Cats in CO, lost a cat in NH growing up and that was the assumed culprit.
I have seen a couple of them there. Larger and darker than a Pine Martin and where the Pine Martin seems curious about how to eat you, a Fisher Cat just wants to do it. I have a friend that works for the DOW, I'll ask her if they are here. In the meantime I will keep my eyes out on the Upper C for Otters, another critter I haven't seen since I was a kid. Cool.
