Species Identification Confidence:
I'm absolutely certain
Wolverine was incidentally trapped in #1 leghold trap set for marten. Trapper reported the situation to the McCall F&G office. IDFG personnel (DCO Marshall Haynes, Wildlife Biologist Diane Evans Mack) responded immediately. Animal was freed from trap with aid of a noose pole but did not move from the site. Appeared to be favoring the foot that had been caught. After monitoring for about half an hour we decided to leave it overnight. Diane Evans Mack returned 24 hrs later and the animal was gone. Wolverine was very small with very subtle markings. Very possibly a young of the year.
