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.

Obviously it was in much better shape than I.

Kinda too bad it met its demise.
I do not have facebook.
Do we know what sent the little feller on it’s way to Wolverine Heaven?
I don't have face book either.

Rumor has it died of un-natural cause when it wandered into an area it was not welcome.

I've heard from sources within the DWR and USU that the wolverine's collar quit uploading data a few weeks back for whatever reason.
Maybe so. I would think they went and looked around the last known area.
