California puts up map of Oregon wolf’s travels

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) – People interested in the far-flung wanderings of Oregon’s celebrity wolf, OR-7, can keep up with his progress on a new website.

The California Department of Fish and Game put up a map Friday showing the wolf’s path since leaving Oregon and heading into the Cascade Range of Northern California.

In the interests of the wolf’s safety, the department will delay posting locations on the map.



The most recent one puts OR-7 about 35 miles south of Alturas, Calif., heading toward Nevada.

The 2-year-old wolf was born in northeastern Oregon, and last September left his pack to seek out a mate and a new territory.



He crossed into California at the end of December and is the first wolf in California in more than 80 years.
