The taxidermied remains of the last known wolverine in the state of Michigan are being displayed at the state's Sanilac County Courthouse.
The wolverine, which was first spotted in 2004 and was found dead in 2010, was preserved by Bay Port taxidermist Sandy Brown and displayed at the Bay City State Recreation Area until it was brought to the Sandusky courthouse Monday as the first stop on the traveling "Lone Wolverine Tour" exhibit, the Times Herald, Port Huron, Mich., reported Tuesday.
"It's a great day in Sanilac County that we can bring the wolverine home," said state Sen. Mike Green, R-Mayville, who was one of about 40 people on hand to witness the display's unveiling Monday.
Officials said the last known wolverine sighting in Michigan prior to 2004 is commonly believed to have been about 200 years ago.
