OR7, the lone grey wolf that wandered from Oregon into California last December, entered Plumas County yesterday, Thursday, July 12, again according to the California Department of Fish and Game.
The wide-ranging male wolf was in Lassen County June 22, moved into Plumas County June 25, and continued to move back and forth between the two counties.
Technical difficulties caused officials to lose track of him for several days. His collar was working, but the website used to collect the information was down.
According to the agency’s tracking, OR7 had entered Butte County from Plumas County by July 2.
After several more days without a satellite reading, the wolf appeared in northeastern Butte County July 9.
There was no satellite download July 10 or 11.
|This Cal Fish and Game map shows OR7's traverls through June 20. His route included traveling down the east shore of Lake Almanor and then just south of Butt Lake near the dam before heading to the Butte Meadows area. Although not shown on this map, OR7 is reported to be back in Plumas County near the Feather River Canyon as of July 13.|
