Remote camera photo of a black wolf that appears to be a female. The photo was captured on May 4 in the same area as OR7. OR7 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, becoming the first wild wolf confirmed in the state in 87 years, and spent much of 2012 wandering northeastern California in a circuitous path that eventually covered thousands of miles.
