OR-7 And Future Management Plans

Oregon Fish & Wildlife

It's been a very big year for Oregon's rock-star wolf, OR-7. 

The wolf that roamed as far afield as California and Nevada returned to Oregon, found a mate, and fathered the first wild wolves born west of the Cascades in generations. 

New test results indicate OR-7's mate is also from Oregon, putting a "girl next door" spin on the new family. 

Both state and federal wildlife workers take great interest in OR-7's story; we visit with the federal Fish and Wildlife Service
