Chasing The Wolverine - Most Extraordinary Predator That Ever Lived - Documentary TV

wolverine, also referred to as glutton, carcajou, skunk bear, or
quickhatch, is the largest land-dwelling species of the family
Mustelidae (weasels). It is a stocky and muscular carnivore, more
closely resembling a small bear than other mustelids. The wolverine, a
solitary animal,[1] has a reputation for ferocity and strength out of
proportion to its size, with the documented ability to kill prey many
times larger than itself.

The wolverine can be found primarily in
remote reaches of the Northern boreal forests and subarctic and alpine
tundra of the Northern Hemisphere, with the greatest numbers in northern
Canada, the U.S. state of Alaska, the Nordic countries of Europe, and
throughout western Russia and Siberia. Their populations have
experienced a steady decline since the 19th century in the face of
trapping, range reduction and habitat fragmentation, such that they are
essentially absent in the southern end of their European range.

Wolverine Trap

This pilot study is focused on surveying for wolverines (Gulo gulo) in the Wallowa-Whitman National Forest within and adjacent to the Eagle Cap Wilderness using proven non-invasive detection methods for wolverines.

Aerial track surveys have now also yielded wolverine track documentation in the study area. Due to the early success of this project, Wolverine Foundation directors have agreed to continue the study next winter, contingent on the availability of funding and equipment.
