OR-7 Timeline of Events

OR7 Area of Known Wolf Activity


February 25. 2014 – From the 2013 Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Annual Report

OR7 dispersed from the Imnaha pack in September 2011. The male wolf spent most of 2012 in California, but on March 13, 2013 he returned to Oregon. Most of his Oregon locations occurred within a 155 square-mile area of eastern Jackson County and western Klamath County from May – October. After March, he also made short visits to California and Douglas County. To date, all available evidence is that he remains alone.


March 13, 2013  Wolf OR7 back in Oregon

Wolf OR7 crossed the state border into southwest Klamath County, Ore. sometime yesterday evening. He first crossed into California on Dec. 28, 2011. ODFW does not post daily location information on OR7 or any GPS-collared wolf. Wolves throughout Oregon are protected by the state Endangered Species Act. West of Hwys 395-78-95, wolves are also protected by the federal ESA. OR7 may cross back into California and use areas in both states. ODFW will continue to monitor his location and coordinate with U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and California Fish and Game.


Wolves are an endangered species and ODFW protects their location. ODFW does not post daily location information about OR7 or other collared wolves.
