The wolverine is a fierce predator that tends to hunt in only the most remote wilderness areas. A relative of the mink, this dog-sized animal is capable of hunting deer or caribou and can drive a cougar from its kill. It can bite through bones with its powerful jaws or sniff out a field mouse, even under deep snow.
The wolverine is a shy animal that tries to avoid contact with humans. Its population has decreased because of low birth rates and human settlements. Recognized as endangered, wolverines are considered a rare and vulnerable species.
