  • Video offers rare glimpse of what may be California's only known wolverine

    California Department of Fish and Wildlife posted on Wednesday, June 22, 2016, a video of a rare wolverine sighting. If this is the same wolverine first confirmed in 2008, the department said, California's only documented wolverine (gulo gulo) is alive and well in Tahoe National Forest. He's at least 9 years old and occupies a range of at least 297 square miles. Wolverines are believed to have lived in California’s Sierra Nevada Range, but fur trapping in the early 1900s helped to eliminate the species from the state. The 2008 sighting was the first documented sighting since the early 1920’s, when a trapper killed one. The wolverine is listed as threatened and is fully protected. DFW sent DNA samples for analysis, but won't know if this is the same animal for two to three weeks. The video appears to be taken in the winter.
