    Wow! I've seen a wolverine, but never a badger.

Sammy liked attending children's birthday parties, and when given a slice of cake, he would wash the cake in water. The poor raccoon was genuinely perplexed when the cake dissolved! Unfortunately, a neighbour shot Sammy.

    I think raccoons are cute. I've never seen one in real life, just on tv and the internet.

    I've never seen a wolverine at all. I'll have to google it.


    Here is a wolverine. Scary looking.

    Finland has Raccoon dogs



    ... they have spread from Russia to Finland ... since 1960's (first east part of Finland) and today you can meet them almost everywhere (except the Northest part of country). So far they have not yet gotten into Sweden, but if/then climate warms ... they will cross the (land) border via north.

    Raccoon dogs also winter sleeps and actually often uses or more like barrows homes of badgers. Badgers will go to sleep earlier at autumns and will wake up later at springs ... so raccoon dogs ''secretly?'' uses their ''homes'' uthermost parts (badgers opposite sleeps in deepest parts of their homes).

    Raccoon dog is actually from Asia. Russians transported it to European side of their own country, it got free/wild and started to spread into west. The blue is the living area where it belongs. The red one? Caused by humans.


    BTW: There are evidences that some Lynxes have hunted Raccoon dogs.

    I have seen wild wolverine only once (via long distance). Amazing climber? It has strong feet and very strong claws.


    Yes. It is a ''badass'' ... wolverine won't step away from adult wolf (if wolf is alone).


    In North America it even stands against Cougar.


    One of the things which I don't like Samis people is that they kills those (illegally) ... because wolverines hunts reindeers. But really ... wolverines are not the real problem (plus I think they have rights to exist) ... the present numbers of reindeers is. Plus like any natural predator ... wolverine will choose the weakest ones. Samis people have increased amounts of their reindeers much too much (their pasture areas shows that very clearly ... amounts of lichen etc.). Finns (and probably same ways Swedes/Norwegians) should take harder attitude against Samis people in this kind of matters ... and not handle them with silk gloves (just because reindeers are part of Samis culture). The cruelest one have drove over wolverine with snowbike (first hunted it hours in snow).

    Now think about second a prehistoric wolverine ... size of jaguar ... what kind of predator it has been.

    You'd be surprised at the wildlife you can see near a city. I've seen foxes, deer, opossum, raccoons and skunks.
    I saw a moose once too but that was in Canada. I was close enough to touch it.
    My mother swore she saw a mountain lion once.

    Oh yes; I have heard pretty wild/amazing stories of waste water systems/lines of USA's big cities.

    Animals seem to like the big power lines. The area under the lines is typically overgrown and humans generally don't go there.
    Deer like to use them as some sort of highway. I've seen foxes there too. Skunks sound funny when angry by the way. Something like the hamburgler from sesame street.

    That's wonderful! They're also tick-eating machines, very handy forest friends to have on property.
