Cax, I am so envious that you have seen a wolverine. I hope one day maybe I will get so lucky.
Well, actually back then I had no idea, what I have seen, lol. It was about early 80ties, I was in the woods collecting mushrooms, and came back by the old unused railroad (Vana Virtsu raudtee). Suddenly, about 100 m or so I noticed some big dark animal doing something. First I thaught - fox, but fox is smaller and lighter and not so fat. Then I thaught about wolf or boar, but neither of them wouldn't normally walk around so close to farms at bright daylight (thou boars visited our potato field at midnight, lol). Then I thaught it is a bear, but again - bears haven't seen here and it was too small for an adult bear (similar by figure, color and movement thou); then I thaught about that dog, who lived nearby, a friendly one, and I called him. He didn't react. As closer I got, I saw bit lighter stripe on his side and the figure was almost like dog's or bear's, but not quite. Then I thaught, it must be wolverine, although I wasn't sure, bc I knew, they are very very rare, more like not living actually here, but visitors from Karjala (Finland). But as one got that far to the west - awesome!
I really don't remember, what happened, when I got closer, probably he just went back to the woods. I tried to find some footprints, but didn't find any - the sand on the road was very dry and didn't keep any prints. But some days later I did read the nature magazine and there was written about wolverine and how they have been seen in same places around. So it must have been definitely a wolverine - figure, size, color and place. It wasn't actually the close encounter, but still - I got some, lol.
