The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife is confirming that Oregon’s wandering wolf has returned from California to Oregon. The agency’s Michelle Dennehy says the animal known as OR-7 crossed the border into southwest Klamath County last night.
OR-7 crossed into California late in 2011, and was most recently in Siskiyou County.
The wolf made a trek of several thousand miles, from eastern Oregon across the state, and then south into California.
He’s wearing a radio tracking collar.
