In dramatic news, a group of researchers at Oregon State University took a photograph of what is likely aGulo gulo luteus (California Wolverine) north of Lake Tahoe b/n Sierraville and Truckee in the National Forest of Tahoe.
This is the first confirmed discovery of a wolverine in California in ninety years. The final one was shot dead in the year 1922.
The real place was on Sagehen Street in the Sagehen Creek region at the Field Station of Sagehen Creek. This place is in the Experimental Forest of Sagehen Creek.
California wolverines seem to stay alive better at lower elevations as one moves north in California. In the direction to the south in the Sierra Nevada, they are available better at eight thousand to nine thousand feet if sightings are any guide. It is twenty miles north of Lake Tahoe and eight point four miles north of Truckee.
Sagehen Basin itself extends from five thousand nine hundred to eight thousand seven hundred feet. Even though much theory mentioning that California wolverines hatred the presence any human, the region where the photograph was taken is only one point five miles away from a main highway, which is Highway 89.
