ENTERPRISE, Ore.—For the first time in recorded history, biologists have confirmed that tracks found in the Wallowa Mountains of Northeast Oregon are those of a North American wolverine.
Researcher Dr. Audrey Magoun found the wolverine tracks in the snow on April 17 while hiking to a remote camera site set up to detect wolverines. She followed the tracks for about a mile until they left the river bottom headed into the high country.
“From the size of the track, it is probably a male,” said Magoun who has dedicated her career to studying wolverine since she received her Ph.D. in 1978.

I saw one on Paulina Peak about 20 years ago. It ran across the road as we were on our way up. I confirmed it with ODFW at the time and they told me I wasn't seeing things and there were a few around there.

had to do the double take to realize what it was.
So did I. Mine kind of 'hopped' across the road and at first I thought it was a small bear - but having seen many bears I never saw one move like that but I will never forget the big, furry paws.

I was thinking the same thing, then realized it was way to short legged to be a bear (seen plenty off them) it just kinda of just humbled along. its was in no hurry.
