National Review Magazine: Last Michigan Wolverine?

Chicago Saturday PM 17 April 2010

Editors, National Review Magazine


A National Review 'The Week' item of 19 April 2010 says Michigan's
“...last wild wolverine was found dead in the woods this month.”

If you found this item in the Saturday, April 11 Lansing [Michigan
Capitol] State Journal, you had a very reliable source. But you must
have stopped reading before the last sentence: “The animal was the first
wolverine ever authenticated in Michigan.”

So why are the University of Michigan's teams called 'Wolverines'?
Maybe 'Buckeyes' was already taken?
