Wolverine

The least-understood of the large carnivores, the mysterious wolverine is an equal-opportunity scavenger-predator—wolverines have been observed bringing down full-sized caribou and deer. The wolverine makes its home in areas with consistent winter snowpack, such as the boreal and subalpine forest of the Columbia Highlands. The critical component of modern day wolverine habitat is the absence of human activity and development; like lynx, they will avoid crossing large openings, such as recent clearcuts or burns.
