For the second time this week, there’s been a Wolverine sighting in the Portland area.

ODFW says the video shows the animal is on the move, likely trying to find a more suitable home. It can travel 30 miles a day.

A wolverine was first spotted Monday along the Columbia River by some fishermen. ODFW said it was believed to be the first sighting in Oregon, outside of the Wallowa Mountains, in more than 30 years.

The wolverine is listed as threatened in Oregon. It’s the largest member of the weasel family and resembles a small bear.
