Wanted: Wolverine carcasses

As part of an ongoing study into the territory’s wolverine population, trappers are invited to submit their frozen, skinned wolverine carcasses to their nearest Environment Yukon office. Trappers will receive $50 for each complete wolverine carcass (including the skull) to recognize their contribution to this research.

Trappers must include the following information with the carcass: trapper name, trapping licence number, trapping concession number, harvest date and sex of animal. For more information about the wolverine study, contact the Senior Wildlife Biologist at 867-667-5766 or toll-free at 1-800-661-0408, ext. 5766.
