WOW! Rare Wolverines Make New Home At Mount Rainier National Park

For the first time in more than 100 years, wolverines are back at Mount Rainier National Park in Washington state. The National Park Service said they spotted one female wolverine and her two offspring (called kits). Wolverines are rare in the U.S.

Right now in Washington state, there are only about 20; across the U.S. there are less than 1,000. A couple of other fun facts: Wolverines belong to the weasel family, weigh around 45 pounds, and live in mountainous areas. They are often described as resembling a small bear with a bushy tail.
