Video captures wandering Ore. wolf's early days

MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- A video taken last spring shows Oregon's lonesome and long-traveling celebrity wolf, OR-7, at home with his pack before hitting the road to look for love.

The Mail Tribune newspaper (http://bit.ly/z6ors8) reported Wednesday that a videographer following a state tracker in Wallowa County in northeastern Oregon got images of the young wolf crossing a fence and loping across a pasture.

The images are small and distant, but experts say they are of the wolf.

Marc Bales of Bend was shooting video of wolves for the group Oregon Wolf Education.

Since then, OR-7 has traveled hundreds of miles looking for a mate and new territory, and most recently has been in Northern California's Shasta County.
