Wolverines are a muscular and stocky animal that lives on the edge of northern boreal forests. They are very smart, often breaking into food caches and cabins to steal food as well as taking animals out of traps. One can hardly blame them for walking away with a free lunch, but pioneers didn't send much love their way. The raised caches that are commonly seen associated with trappers' cabins were devised in part due to the tenacity of Wolverines. Over the years trappers tried numerous different deterrents and always with limitted success. Wolverines have gained a reputation as ferocious animals that can and will kill animals several times their size.
