SALT LAKE CITY — After capturing and collaring a wolverine, biologists with the Division of Wildlife Resources were able to track its behaviors.
A year ago, in March 2022, a wolverine was found and collared for the first in Utah.
Utah DWR captures, collars and releases wolverine; only 8th confirmed sighting since 1979
The collar indicated the wolverine is quite the traveler! Within a span of three weeks the fierce animal:
- covered 214 miles
- migrated an average of .43 miles each hour (Although according to DWR, it sometimes covered up to 3 miles in an hour – as the crow flies – in areas with over five feet of snow!)
- crossed from one side of the Uintah Mountains to the other, four different times!
