Wolverine: Chasing the Phantom: 60 Minutes - Its name stirs images of the savage, the untamable. Legend paints it as a solitary, bloodthirsty killer that roams the heart of the frozen north, taking down prey as large as moose, crushing bones to powder with its powerful jaws. But there is another image of the wolverine that is just beginning to emerge, one that is far more complex than its reputation suggests. This show takes viewers into the secretive world of the largest and least known member of the weasel family to reveal who this dynamic little devil truly is. Hard-wired to endure an environment of scarcity, the wolverine is one of the most efficient and resourceful carnivores on earth. (Watch Preview)
