I was 100% confident you invented that quote.
Animal fights: Can a honey badger win a fight with a wolverine?
The first picture in the article is a european badger, not a honey badger. Honey badgers look like this.
I don't trust a word the guy says now. I come to mgoblog for authoritative knowledge on badgers and other mustelids and I'm disappointed by this shoddy link.
Wolverine would win in a heartbeat....
"In terms of behavior, the wolverine is fearless. It has been recorded killing a polar bear by latching onto the throat with its jaws and suffocating the animal."
... a road trip to Ann Arbor in the back of the bus with the Wisconsin Marching Band.
"According to Dr. Jens Persson from the Swedish Wolverine Project,"....
and I was surprised to continue reading and see it was about the claws of wolverines, not Red's secret recruiting team in a safehouse in Stockholm trying to find the next Carl Hagelin. Oh well.
No question the honey badger goes down to wolverine every time. A wolverine won't even shy away from a brown bear, what kind of animal does not turn tail and run from a brown bear. Humans would run from a brown bear if it would help because a brown bear would have no problem catching said human and turning him into well, something no one wants to be. The only human that can stand up to a wolverine or a brown bear at all is a well armed human.
at a remote campsite in the Rockies. The dog went racing up at it, growling and barking - my friend said the dog was half again as big as the wolverine. The wolverine took two swipes.
The first took the dog's lower jaw right off. The second tore its throat out.
Lessons: don't ever screw around with a wolverine. And keep your dogs leashed in the high country.
