What is a wolverine?

   The wolverine is a fierce animal the size of a small dog. It lives in northern Asia, in Europe, and in North America north of the United States. It is a flesh eater of the WEASEL family. In England and Europe it is named glutton.
   The wolverine is heavily built, and has a pointed face, small ears, and very sharp claws. Discounting wild stories of its cunning and malicious destructiveness, this animal is nevertheless clever and can be extremely destructive, especially if trapped or annoyed. Though not native there, the wolverine is Michigan's state animal.
