I'm including a picture of a couple of deer for scale.

Trying to figure out what the blob of fur is walking up the road. It looks like a very small bear, but I can sort of imagine seeing a diamond on it's back (wolverine). I did see wolverine tracks about a mile away from this location last March. The body shape seems a little odd for a wolverine though.

It looks like a bear to me. It may have some sort of identification tag on it.

Fat little rascal whatever it is; I'll go with bear. In the last pic, I'm going to assume a set of eyes down the path?

I'm thinking bear. The last pic looks like there's a spider hanging down in front of the camera.

I think what you're saying is possibly the diamond is actually the head being turned slightly and you're getting eye flash.

I'll go with bear too, the shape doesn't look very much like wolverine.


Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

If it's not a wolverine I think what you're suggesting is probably the most likely possibility.
There is a radio collared female wolverine within about a 20 mile radius of where this picture was taken. It almost looks like something's on its neck. Maybe a radio collar antenna?
