I've heard stories of wolverines in Oregon for many years from people who insisted they saw the tracks, the effects, etc. Not news to a lot of people except the authorities; as one woman told me some time ago it was impossible to be taken seriously by anyone from Fish and Game, etc.

In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying
"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
