Alaska uses Wolverines for search and rescue operations?



The Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center has suggested training wolverines to find and rescue avalanche survivors. According to the center, it is instinctive for Wolverines to smell some 20 feet under the snow. Wolverines are also famous for climbing terrain that requires professional climbing equipment for humans. The center adds that Training Wolverines was not as fancy as it sounded and compared it to dogs.
