Wandering Wolf Back on the Grid

Thankfully OR-7 has been found – back in northern California again. Oregon’s famous wandering wolf was finally seen back on the grid Friday after escaping satellite surveillance for five straight days. There had been fears something might have happened to him such as poaching which is a real threat to wolves. The gray wolf is a federally protected species in California.

OR-7 was born in northeastern Oregon as a member of the Imnaha Pack. He is the first wolf known to roam into California since the last trapping of a wild wolf in 1924. He has been searching for a mate and has traveled back and forth between Oregon and California.

He was captured and fitted with a tracking collar a year and a half ago. The GPS system sends daily signals to a satellite that plots his position. This has allowed biologists to follow his trek across Oregon into Northern California. Typically collars only last about two years.

Karen Kovacs of the California Department of Fish and Game said, “Whether or not he was in an area that satellites couldn’t get a fix on him, or his collar is starting to malfunction, we don’t know. But he is back online this morning in western Plumas County.”

This coming Wednesday a public hearing is scheduled in Sacramento, Calif., on whether to put gray wolves on the California state endangered species list. Conservation groups have petitioned the California Fish and Wildlife Commission for the protection. The biggest opposition to the restoration of wolf populations in California has come from ranchers who are fearful the wolves will attack their livestock. So far there have been no reports that OR-7 has attacked any. The area has abundant deer for him to prey on. Stay safe on your journey, OR-7!

  1. PERTH WESTERN AUSTRALIA – WHAT A HANDSOME & MAGNIFICENT LOOKING BOY!!! WE DON’T HAVE WOLVES IN AUSTRALIA BUT WE HAVE THE DINGO. THEY TOO GET BAD PRESS BUT NOTHING COMPARED TO WHAT I HAVE SEEN/READ ABOUT THE WOLF. THEY SEEM TO HAVE EVERYTHING STACKED AGAINST THEM EXCEPT FOR THEIR SUPPORTERS & THE HOPE TO GET THEM RE-LISTED FOR PROTECTION.
    I WAS JUST WONDERING, IF A WOLF HAS A SATELLITE COLLAR DOES THAT ALLOW HIM/HER TO BE TRACKED BY ANYONE OR JUST THE THE PEOPLE/ORG. THAT COLLARED HIM/HER? BECAUSE IF THEY CAN GET TRACKED BY ANYONE, WHAT REAL CHANCE DO THEY HAVE OF SURVIVING? ISNT THE COLLAR HOW THEY MANAGED TO CHEAT THEIR WAY INTO FINDING & MURDERING THE ALPHA MALE OF THE DEC. WEDGE PACK?
    EVEN NOW SILENT TEARS STILL FLOW FOR WHAT WAS, WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN BUT IS NO LONGER…SO SO WRONG…RIP

  2. I believe the wolf should be on all endangered species lists thus keeping them safe! Some people do not realize that the wolf should be revered not feared as they are a most loyal and majestic animal! It pains me to see these beautiful animals being hunted!

  3. One can have a healthy respect and honor the strength of the wolf, but not fear is. For fear is the greatest destruction to all beings. The wolf needs the protection, especially with the raging ignorance among ranchers. Not all are as dumbfounded by nature and live in a state of pseudo fear. But sadly for the most, these ranchers get subsidies and land holdings that get big kick backs from the federal government. We as a nation, all nations that share this land need to educate ourselves and our neighbors. We need to show up to local counsel meetings and take part in our communities.

    Ranchers fearing the wolf might snatch livestock is like me worrying about the gophers and squirrels coming after my organic crop. It happens, but you have to know how to deter it. Prepare, and protect with out slaughter.

    In the service of the highest kind…
