Officials estimate that less than 300 wolverines roam the Lower 48, so seeing one in the wild is truly a rare experience.
The video below shows a wolverine running, swimming, and jumping as it hunts a deer near Ajax Peak in Montana. The animal’s athleticism is on full-display.
Just a fair warning to anybody who gets motion sickness- the video is very shaky. It seems as if the cameraman was recording this encounter from a distance using a zoom lens. With that said, the picture quality is fantastic.
It’s one of the best wolverine encounters we’ve ever seen.
Whitney Beckley: “Rare footage of wolverine seen attempting a kill over 4th of July weekend 2017 near Ajax Mountain in Montana. Less than 250 of these roam in the lower 48.”
