Nearly 90 years after wolverines were considered extinct in California, researchers at UC Berkeley’s Sagehen Creek Field Station in the Sierra Nevada snapped a photo of a wolverine at their bait station in 2008. Thought to be the only one of its kind in California, this male’s solitary plight was highlighted this year when Sierra Pacific Industries, which owns land nearby, released video footage and these photographs suggesting that the lone wolverine is searching for a mate.
