Add comment on:California's Lone Wolf Returns, Highlighting Need for Wolf Protection
Center for Biological Diversity
SAN FRANCISCO— California’s first confirmed wild wolf in nearly 90 years made a return trip to the Golden State for a brief visit this past weekend. According to the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, the wolf called OR-7 crossed the border into Siskiyou County on Dec. 7, then returned to Oregon. His brief foray back into California supports the position advanced by wolf advocates that wolves from Oregon will continue to make their way into the state and that the species thus warrants protection under California’s Endangered Species Act.
