(LANSING) -- The "lone wolverine" is in West Michigan. A traveling exhibit featuring the first wild wolverine confirmed in the state since the 1800s has been making its way around the state. It's on display at the Wolf Lake Fish Hatchery Visitor Center in Van Buren County. It'll be there through August 25. The exhibit next moves on to a state park in Muskegon. The wolverine's carcass was discovered in 2010 by hikers in the Minden City State Game Area in the Thumb. She's since been stuffed and mounted. 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.
