OR-7, affectionately named “Journey”, was the first confirmed wolf in California since 1924. He traveled over 4,000 miles back and forth from California to Oregon in 2012-13 and has since sired five litters in the Rogue-Siskiyou National Forest. At least three of OR-7’s pups and two of his siblings have been documented in California.
The Lassen Pack is California’s second confirmed wolf pack. Their territory lies within Lassen and Plumas counties. The alpha male (CA08M) was born into the Rouge Pack in 2014, sired by OR-7. The alpha female (LAS01F) was collared in June of 2017. The pair has had two litters and currently consists of two yearlings and five pups.
