Lone Wolf Crosses State Border Back Into Oregon

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) — Oregon’s wandering wolf, OR-7, has crossed the border back into his home state after spending the last couple of months in Northern California.

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife said Friday that the latest GPS tracking collar data put him in Klamath County on Thursday and in Jackson County at midnight.

OR-7 was the first known wolf in California in 87 years.

Just before members of his pack in northeastern Oregon were put under a kill order for preying on livestock, OR-7 lit out for new territory last September.

He has trekked more than 1,000 miles across highways, deserts and mountains, looking for a mate and a new home territory.

There have been no livestock attacks confirmed along his path.
