Ore. wolf hits Klamath County, 280 miles from home

Add another first to the travels of OR7, the 2-year-old male wolf from northeastern Oregon on walkabout.

State wolf coordinator Russ Morgan said Wednesday the latest radio tracking collar data put OR7 in the Cascades in Klamath County, somewhere between Crater Lake and Upper Klamath Lake.

Morgan says this kind of wandering is normal for young wolves, and he could get to California before he is done.

Wolves came to northeastern Oregon from Idaho in 1999 and now number at least 23.

OR7 left the Imnaha pack in Wallowa County on Sept. 10 and is 280 miles from home. He has visited Baker, Harney, Grant, Crook, Deschutes, Lake, Douglas and Klamath counties.

Recently he visited the Umpqua National Forest, where the last Oregon wolf was shot for bounty in 1946.
