When Steve Kroschel approaches a wolverine, he does it with a surprisingly casual and friendly manner.
He is no lion tamer, holding a chair and asserting dominance. Kroschel knows that wolverines can be dangerous. But you might see him petting one as you would the family dog.
Kroschel runs a wildlife preserve in Haines, Alaska. He has a rare familiarity with animals that has taken years to build. The preserve helps orphaned animals and acclimates them to people.
Some of the animals have even been featured in movie productions. CBC's Vivian Belik visited the Kroschel Films Wildlife Centre.
