Rescue role for wolverines

Alaskan conservationists are training wolverines to sniff out humans trapped in debris and avalanches. Wolverines have incredible power of smell and shovelling abilities. Sceptics scoff at the idea, but Alaskan Conservationists working on it insists that wolverines can very well do what dogs do, sometimes even better. The only constraint according to them is the fact that wolverines are hard to breed in captivity. Environmentalists worldwide are eagerly waiting to see the results of this path breaking initiatives.
