This photo was taken on a Nature Images Finland Bears trip led by Mark Sisson. Click here to see Mark's blog posting on the trip.

Globally, the status of the Wolverine is classified as Least Concern. However, there are estimated to be only around 150 individuals in Finland so this was a rare sighting. The animal was spotted briefly from one of the three Swamp Hides on the trail to the Forest Hides at 6.40 am.
