VIDEO: Man and his Daughter Film Wolverine in Yellowstone
May 22, 2023
Wolverines are famously elusive creatures, and most people only see them a few times in their life, it at all. But here's another wolverine sighting video! Maybe people are just lucky these days!
We'll let the man filming tell you the rest:
"On March 5, 2022 my daughter Maya and I saw one of the most elusive animals on earth while on tour with legendary nature guide MacNeil Lyons of Yellowstone Insight Tours… A wild wolverine! To put this in perspective, there have only been SEVEN wolverines ever seen in Yellowstone!
He continues: "After an already amazing day in the park, filled with wolves, bears, mountain goats, big horn sheep, elk, golden eagles and more, we turned around to make our way back, when I saw what I thought was a black bear running down the road. As soon as it turned, we realized we were in the middle of a once in a lifetime experience. MacNeal stopped the suburban, threw on the hazards, and we both began shooting (while trying to maintain our composure). The wolverine, which looked to be about 30 LBS according to MacNeal and Park Ranger Schwartz (who saw the pics and tracks), appeared to be more curious than afraid. It looked at us several times before bounding up the hill. After giving us one more inquisitive look from the top of the hill (where MacNeil got some AMAZING shots) it disappeared into the Yellowstone’s deep evergreen forest, and left us all with a memory we will never forget."
Wow! See the whole video below, and try not to be too jealous of this lucky man and his daughter!
