(LANSING) -- The "lone wolverine" is heading to Michigan's Capitol this week. The traveling exhibit featuring the first wild wolverine confirmed in the state since the 1800's has been making its way around the state since last year. It now is stopping in Lansing and will be shown there Tuesday through Friday. Department of Natural Resources Director Keith Creagh will join State Senators Mike Green of Mayville and Phil Pavlov of St. Clair Township and "The Wolverine Guy" Jeff Ford for the exhibit's unveiling Tuesday at the Capitol. The wolverine's body was discovered in 2010 by hikers in the Minden City State Game Area. Despite its lack of native wolverines, Michigan unofficially is known as "The Wolverine State," and the animal is the mascot of the University of Michigan's sports teams.
