A new book tells the story of Michigan’s last known wild wolverine, which died in the Thumb in early 2010.
The book is by Liz Shaw, a former reporter for the Flint Journal; and Jeff Ford, a former Deckerville high school science teacher.
The book, titled “The Lone Wolverine: Tracking Michigan’s Most Elusive Animal,” was released this month.
(This interview with Shaw aired April 27, 2012, on Friday Edition, Q-90.1 FM, Delta College.)
The wolverine, a female, was found dead by hikers in a Sanilac County marsh in March 2010. The death was attributed to natural causes. The wolverine was about 9 years old.
She is now on display at the Bay City State Recreation Area in Bay County’s Bangor Township.
