Oregon wolf famous for his wanderings may have found a mate

General May 13, 2014

By Shelby Sebens PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) – An Oregon wolf which became the subject of a documentary after making a monumental trek from Oregon to California and back may have finally found what he’s been searching for: love.  Oregon wildlife officials said on Tuesday they believe the gray wolf, dubbed OR 7 because he was the seventh wolf collared for tracking in 2011, may have found a mate. If the pair have pups, it would be the first known wolf breeding in the Oregon Cascades since the early 20th century.  OR 7 became well known when he traipsed into California in December 2011, making him the first known wild wolf in the state since 1924. He traveled more than any of the seven wolves collared, making him a celebrity and the focus of a documentary being made to track his progress, Wolf OR 7 Expedition.  “I think it brings awareness of the issue of recovery of an endangered species, especially with the potential for his finding a mate and possibly having a family,” said Elizabeth Materna, public affairs specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Oregon Fish and Wildlife Office.

    Hi SCARS, we just wanted to say thank you. Nine years ago we adopted a beautiful black lab cross named Luna from a SCARS adoption event. She was a truly beautiful, smart and gentle soul. Once our kids arrived she loved them like they were always with us. She sadly developed a lump (non cancerous) Second Chance Animal Rescue Society

    Hi SCARS, My wife and I adopted Sam from SCARS a couple years ago. Since we’ve had him, he has changed so much. I could barely get close to him at first. He’s come a very long way. He’s such a good boy. We taught him a few tricks and he’s definitely opened up. He’ll Second Chance Animal Rescue Society

    In the nick of time, not a moment too soon……use any saying you like, I was in desperate need of help.  Left at a garbage dump, just a young pup, malnourished and weak. In my weakened state I was unable to fight off a massive infestation of the Demodex mite (like Mange, but not contagious).  Second Chance Animal Rescue Society
