Wandering Wolf OR-7 is California dreamin' on this winter's day! On Wednesday, the 2-yr-old male crossed into the "Golden State" making him the first confirmed wild wolf in California since 1924! It's been an epic journey for this lone wolf, he's wandered more than 300 miles from his original home in northeast Oregon. Who knows how long he'll choose to linger in California. He'll likely keep moving in search of a mate before he makes any state his permanent home. In the meantime, we're enjoying his new-found fame during this time when positive stories re: wolves and their recovery here in the U.S. are few and far between. For more information, read more from the California Department of Fish and Game here.
