The travels of the first wild wolf documented in California in nearly 90 years can be viewed online.
The California Department of Fish and Game on Wednesday published a map of the route taken by the wolf, dubbed OR7 by Oregon officials before it crossed into California on Dec. 28.
The map illustrates the general location of the wolf based on information from a GPS collar attached to it by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. It shows the wolf's location only through Jan. 7 in order to protect it from potential poachers.
Also named "Journey" in a contest held by the conservation group Oregon Wild, the wolf has traveled more than 200 miles since entering California, and nearly 1,000 miles total since leaving its birth pack in northeast Oregon in September.
As of Friday, according to Fish and Game, OR7 had traveled farther east into Lassen County and is closer to Nevada than Oregon.
The map, a large PDF file, can be found online at www.dfg.ca.gov/wildlife/nongame/wolf/ and will be updated periodically.
