Where Oh Where Are The Wolverines?

Although wolverines are often associated with Michigan, only one has been spotted in the state in over 200 years.

Wolverines mainly live in secluded arctic and alpine regions of northern Canada, Alaska, Siberia, and Scandinavia; they are also native to European Russia, the Baltic countries, the Russian Far East, northeast China and Mongolia. In 2008 and 2009, wolverines were sighted near Lake Tahoe for the first time since 1922. They are also found in low numbers in the Rocky Mountains however most New World wolverines live in Canada.
