Wandering wolf's trek brings him close to Oregon
Saturday, February 25, 2012
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) -- The lonesome and long-traveling celebrity wolf made famous for a trek of hundreds of miles is back within 10 miles of the Oregon border.
The Mail Tribune newspaper (http://bit.ly/wwI4cA) reports OR-7 remains in California's Siskiyou County.
California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Mark Stopher says there's no way to tell where the wolf will go next. The department is tracking signals from his GPS collar.
He spent about one month in California's eastern Lassen County near the Nevada border after zig-zagging across Southern Oregon's Cascade crest.
The wolf was born in northeastern Oregon but left his pack to seek out a mate and a new territory in September. He crossed into California at the end of December, becoming the first wolf in that state in more than 80 years.
