People who get Patagonia's catalogs will have already seen this, but I thought these essays were something the rest of the board may be interested in.
Apparently recent research has determined that wolverines are even more bad ass than was previously thought. A quote:
Back in the Ice Ages, the ancestors of wolverines competed for prey and carcasses with saber-toothed cats, dire wolves, mega-bears and giant northern hyenas. Natural selection in this crowd did not favor the slow, shy or even slightly polite. Which helps explain why the 25- to 45-pound wolverines we know today singlehandedly bring down grown caribou and an occasional moose, and will fight a grizzly over the spoils.
"The Wolverine Way" by Douglas H. Chadwick:
"The One Thing Wolverines Can't Take On":
It turns out Mr. Chadwick is also publishing a book titled The Wolverine Way. The cover shot appeared in the latest Patagonia catalog, and it's the best wolverine photo I've ever seen. If they blew it up into a 24" x 36" poster I'd own it in a heartbeat.
I would scan that pic and post it, but I'm pretty sure it would violate copyright.
You can see a sample of the pic on Amazon:
