Wolf that crossed into Calif. likely photographedGray wolf that made rare trek from Oregon into Calif. likely caught on camera for 1st time
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.
