While having fun sliding down a slope on a bison pelt, Yakari crashes into the backside of the terrifying Wolverine, who falls into a patch of allergy-inducing plants. Furious, the animal sets off after him, but he starts coughing and rubbing his nose, and his eyes are so sore that he fails to see a ravine, and falls right into it! Yakari doesn’t have the heart to leave him there. He convinces the beavers to get over their fear of the wolverine and cut down a tree trunk so he can throw it into the ravine to help the wolverine climb out to freedom. The wolverine promises not to attack them, but can they trust him? Little-Thunder doesn’t think so.
