A hiker caught this rare photo of a wolverine in California -- and no, it wasn't Hugh Jackman. He caught the photo in Tahoe near Lake Spaulding. I'm sad to tell you that I have been there and I hate hiking on/near granite, so now I have one more excuse NOT to go.
The real news here is that California, which is broke, recently had a stuffed Wolverine removed from the wall of a Georgetown bar. There isn't much in Georgetown. I think its primary attraction is now for ghost hunters. The stuffed animals go back as far as the late 1800s, so it's not like the wardens saved any Wolverines.
Someone "tipped off" wardens that these animals were there. Uh, they've been there for CENTURIES and they're a problem now, why? Oh, oh, political-correctness.
The fact that wardens have a JOB doing this in a remote bar in the middle of nowhere, ticks me off. This state is BROKE and we paid someone to remove a historically-relevant piece of history. I hope it's haunted and they took it with them. LOL
This right here is pretty much the extent of Georgetown. I'm so glad for the California Fish & Wildlife Department now. I feel safer.
FYI, here are the animals that you may not have stuffed. No matter how old they are. (I'm glad to see I could have stuffed my hamster. That's apparently not illegal yet.)
Morro Bay kangaroo rat
Bighorn sheep, except Nelson bighorn sheep
Northern elephant seal
Guadalupe fur seal
Pacific right whale
Salt-marsh harvest mouse (I could swear they have one at the Coyote Pt Museum)
Southern sea otter
