Wolverine Appears in Sierra Nevada

Katie Moriarty was hoping to get pictures of weasels. What she got--so it seems--is the first documented wolverine sighting in the Sierra Nevada since 1922. "The conventional wisdom was that they were pretty much gone from California," said Bill Zielinski, a research ecologist for the Forest Service who was working with Moriatry.

"We know they are in the Sierra," said Paul Spitler, public lands director for the Center for Biological Diversity. "We don't know how many and we don't know how far they travel, but we certainly know they exist."

I am investigating a credible sighting a wolverine in Trinity County by two people on 3/25/08. I have placed several camera traps in the area. Hopefully the aminal is still present in the area and will be drawn in by the tunafish bait I placed in front of the motion activated video cameras. If the wolverine is still in the area I may be able to get a video of it.
