Utah's Wondering Wolverine

Here is a little bit of information on the wolverine that the DWR trapped and collared a year ago this week.

It was posted on FB but if you don't have a account here is the information

#TBT to when we captured and collared a wolverine for the first time in Utah! It happened a year ago this week, so we wanted to share some cool things we learned. In a span of just over three weeks, this small-but-fierce traveler:
Covered 214 miles.
Migrated an average of .43 miles each hour. (Although on some occasions, it covered up to 3 miles in an hour — as the crow flies — in areas with over five feet of snow!)
Crossed from one side of the Uintas to the other four different times.

Maybe the DWR should "introduce" the Wolverine into Utah. That's better than a pack of Wolves I'd think.
