ABSTRACT
The article features the uncommon captive birth of a wolverine kit at the Northwest Trek Wildlife Park in Eatonville, Washington on February 14, 2006. The keepers immediately removed the kit from the wolverine habitat after birth to ensure its chance for survival. The kit appears snow white against the dark brown coats of its parents. According to the author, wolverines are defined as carnivorous mammals native to the northern part of North America and Europe. The species is listed under the Red List, a vulnerable category of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources.
