A handful of wolverine sightings have been reported in Yellowknife.
The department of Environment and Natural Resources (ENR) confirmed three sightings, on Sunday, near Finlayson Dr., Magrum Cres. and Forrest Dr.
ENR says they investigated all three areas with no trace of the animal.
“Yellowknife is a wilderness city, and with freeze-up, it is easier for wild animals to cover longer distances, sometimes making their way into town. Wolverines are not unusual in the Yellowknife area,” says Darren Campbell, a spokesperson for ENR.
There have been no further reports of wolverine sightings since Sunday.
Residents can call ENR at 1-867-873-7181 with sightings of large wildlife within city bounds.
