I am sure somebody will call bullshit on this but I believe I seen one west of Medina in the early AM a couple years ago. I am about 90% sure it was a wolverine(due to the distance can’t say 100%). I was heading west and the animal was heading east at a pretty good clip. Moved just like a wolverine and looked like one(100% sure it was not a dog). At first my buddy and I thought it was a small bear which it couldn’t be because of it being Medina and also the way the animal looked as we got closer to it. After researching it we came to the conclusion it was a wolverine. As far as how far away we were from this animal..prob 50 yards or so.
BISHOP, Calif. (AP) — A wolverine was spotted three times last month in the eastern Sierra Nevada, a rare occurrence for an animal that's only been seen one other time in California over the last 100 years, state wildlife officials said.
While wolverines are native to California, they've been essentially extinct from the state since the 1920s — likely the result of hunting and fur trapping in the decades following the gold rush, though records from the time don't indicate what exactly caused the population to decline.
One wolverine was spotted in the state from 2008 to 2018, beginning in the Tahoe National Forest, officials said. Last month's wolverine is likely a different one because the animal's lifespan is usually 12 to 13 years.
Wonder if you can train one to eat the residents of that shit hole state??
The Rancher said it was chasing his cattle so no charges were filed. There were some newspaper articles written about it and I believe it was mentioned on the local news and Ag week . The one up by the peace gardens was shot by a Native American and was probably shot on the reservation and it was probably attacking his dog.
I realized that I lied or a mistake after some thought. It wasn't a wolverine that was shot up by the Peace Gardens, it was a feral hog. It was about the same time the wolverine was shot so I guess I got my wires crossed.
