Center for Biological Diversity
FORTUNA, Calif.— In response to a 2012 petition from the Center for Biological Diversity and allies, the California Fish and Game Commission voted today to protect gray wolves under the state’s Endangered Species Act. The 3-1 vote for protecting wolves comes two days after wildlife biologists observed two wolf pups in the Oregon portion of the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest that straddles the California-Oregon border. The pups, which are likely to be part of a litter of four to six pups, are the offspring of the wolf known as OR-7, which has made California part of his range for the past four years.
