Wolf that crossed into Calif. likely photographed

Gray wolf that made rare trek from Oregon into Calif. likely caught on camera for 1st time By The Associated Press

GRANTS PASS, Ore. (AP) ' A young male gray wolf that wandered hundreds of miles across Oregon and eventually crossed into California as he searched for a mate has apparently been photographed for the first time.

A state biologist told the Mail Tribune newspaper on Tuesday that the photo of a wolf sniffing the ground in a stand of dense forest is likely the animal known as OR-7.

Roblyn Schneider Brown says the wolf appears to have on a tracking collar, and GPS data put OR-7 in the area of the Cascades in southern Oregon where the photo was taken.

An automatic camera set by a hunter to track deer snapped the black-and-white photo on Nov. 14.

A biologist captured and fitted the collar on OR-7 last spring but did not take a photograph.
