In this remote camera photo taken May 3, 2014, and provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the wolf OR-7 stands on the Rogue River-Siskiyou National Forest in southwest Oregon’s Cascade Mountains.";

Gray wolf OR-7 may be quite long in the tooth, but he’s still got what it takes in the den.

OR-7, more than 9 years old, has now sired 16 known pups.
