A few years ago there was a moose about 40 miles south of the IGLs, and we caught a badger last year trapping. So yeah, anything can happen, so I do believe the OP on this subject.shaleyParticipantOctober 7, 2011 at 3:21 amPost count: 2568

If you saw one there is no mistaking it. Back in 89 or 90 I lived in south dakota and worked on a farm. There had been reports of some neighbors seeing one in the river bottom by the farm. I was out working a field and as I turned around on an end there was an old hay pile. I saw what I first thought was the biggest badger I had ever seen looking at me. I bailed out of the cab with my .22 and as I got half way to the pile the thing bailed out of that pile, it didn’t take me long to realize that my .22 was worthless, so back to the cab I went. It was deffinately a wolverine, about three times the size of a badger. I went over to the fence and watched him run away through the pasture for about a half mile. I will never forget it, it was one of the neatest things I have ever seen in the wild. Now I just need to get tangled up with a cougar.gchordbobParticipantOctober 10, 2011 at 2:07 pmPost count: 463
Several years ago, mid 1950’s or so, a farmer South of Reinbeck shot a wolverine.
For some reason the story can not be found in the, at that time, Iowa Conservationist Magazine archives. But that’s where I read it.
The farmers name was Mitchell & the local game warden was Bill Boswell who was called in on the deal.
