A recently concluded study found Glacier Park to have the third highest density of Wolverines in North America . . .
Results from a multi-year DNA study of Glacier National Park’s wolverines show a relatively high density compared to other regions where the rare carnivores are known to exist.
Park biologist John Waller, along with about 50 volunteers, set up “hair traps” for wolverines from 2009 to 2012.
The traps consisted of a deer leg from roadkill bolted to a pole. Wire brushes were attached to snag hair from any animal that tried to climb the pole to gnaw on the leg.
