ENDANGERED SPECIES -- People interested in the far-flung wanderings of Oregon’s celebrity wolf, OR-7, can keep up with his progress into other states on a new website.
The California Department of Fish and Game put up a map Friday showing the wolf’s path since leaving Oregon and heading into the Cascade Range of Northern California.
In the interests of the wolf’s safety, the department is delaying posting locations on the map by about a week.
The most recent one puts OR-7 about 35 miles south of Alturas, Calif., heading northeast toward Nevada.
The 2-year-old wolf was born in northeastern Oregon, and last September left his pack to seek out a mate and a new territory.
He crossed into California at the end of December and is the first wolf in California in more than 80 years.
