Three years after he was first spotted, and 89 years since the last of his kind was trapped here, the state's only wolverine is still stalking the Sierra Nevada. Off-Ramp Host John Rabe speaks with Bill Zielinski, a carnivore specialist with the US Forest Service's Pacific Southwest Research Station, about the only known wolverine wandering California.
