Remote camera photo of OR7 captured on May 3 in eastern Jackson County on USFS land. olf OR7 is so-named because he was the seventh wolf to be radio-collared in Oregon. He became a media star when he traversed the entire length of Oregon late in 2011 in search of a mate. He then entered California in December of that year, and spent much of 2012 wandering northeastern California in a circuitous path that eventually covered thousands of miles. He returned to Oregon in March 2013, but remained near the California border and has repeatedly crossed back and forth.
