It’s official: Rogue Pack alpha wolf OR-7 is a grandfather.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife confirmed Wednesday that the son of the famous wandering OR-7 has paired with a female, and they produced three pups this year.

The adult female, whose origins are unknown, was trapped and collared June 30 in Lassen National Forest, where biologists discovered evidence of wolf presence in May, according to CDFW.
