The following is from Kim:
Well this is the second story in the "Wildlife Series". After seeing our first Pine Marten, when we saw this guy wandering through the yard, we grabbed our newly purchased book on wild animals. We quickly identified him as a Wolverine! Wow, we were so thrilled to have seen a Wolverine which is almost non-existent in our area. We also had some 8mm video of the animal, which we later showed to our neighbors. They laughed hysterically at us! In fact they still laugh about it when we see them.
It was not a Wolverine, it was a Fisher! Fisher's are a little larger than Pine Marten's and they have a bear like face instead of a cat like face like the marten. They are much more skittish than marten's so we never became friends with this Fisher, although we did see him fairly often our first summer on the Honeymoon Trail. Click here to see our "wolverine"
