How do you kill a wolverine? Give it everything it wants. Put it in a large comfortable enclosure with a plush den, all the rodents and caribou steaks it wants, keep the temperature perfect, and wait. It might take a year or two, but it will die. Without the need to hunt, it will not hunt. Without the need to find shelter, it won’t worry about things like digging holes. Soon it will lose interest in those things, actually lose the ability to do those things, and then you’ll have yourself a nice throw rug/conversation piece that started when you posited a theory that life requires a challenge to thrive.
