Wolverines have been seen as late as 2012, but they're just not the same.

Their only natural enemy is the buckeye.

It's about time C. Thomas Howell rebooted his career.

Unfortunately, that hasn't happened ever since Soul Man.

There's probably some half blind tourist wondering where their Pomeranian mix went.

Bigger than a bagger.  All the attitude of a pissed off weasel.  Scent glands of a skunk.  Able to poach kills from bears because even a bear doesn't want to fark around with it.

Someone circled back in line when nature was getting nasty with its predators.

Fun little tidbit...  the Ontario government actually approved a census of wolverines in NWOnt a few years back.  They are technically endangered, but nobody had actually bothered to do an actual count, or to study the kind of range size that they maintain, so no one had a clue what a healthy population should actually look like.

Study is ongoing, but so far they are rather surprised by the territory each one claims...

I swear we saw one a decade ago up in Whatcom county, out on the Van Zandt Dike. It ran across the logging road, and both hubby and I were all "that was one strange looking lost dog". Got home and googled, sure looked like one.
Love seeing wildlife in my home state!

Are you describing the wolverine or the grocery bagger?

That's cool as hell, and why aren't they on the endangered species list? I'd say 300 on the continent is somewhat endangerdly...

We need more wild animals that can fark you up in this country. People have become a bit too complacent. Time for some of the ultra (wild) violence.

I don't know... good old "Slow Joe" at the local store has to be pushing 250lbs. Great guy, follows his mom around like a puppy when she is shopping...
But yeah, Joe is way bigger.

The one place you'll never see a wolverine is Indianapolis at the Big Ten Championship

What is most interesting to me is that wolverines are not usually thought of as beach bums, but this one seems happy eating dead seal(?) or whatever. Makes me wonder if our perception of them as being restricted to mountains is that human activity basically restricts them to that range.

Maybe wolverines hang out at the beach normally, we just made a "normal" where they cant.

I had a wolverine as a pet that I knitted a sweater for, but he ripped my arm off so I had to let him go.

There isn't a mountain within a 1000 miles of here, and we have them (at least a few of them).

More temperate forest than mountain.  It's an intelligent, adaptable,midsize predator.  I'm pretty sure if there is game, you'll find them from mild sub-artic to sourthern temperate areas.

Saw one while mountain biking.  Had no clue wtf it was at first.  It ran down the trail and eventually disappeared on the other side of an old logging road. Fast mofo
