The Struggle for Life as a Lone Wolf OR-7 is the official designation of the first wolf in the wilds of California in almost 90 years. He crossed over from Oregon a month ago, apparently in search of a mate, but the going has not been easy. An electronic tracking collar has followed him for 1000 miles, but recently he's been staying in the same place, somewhere in Lassen County northeast of Sacramento. We hear more about the reintroduction of an endangered species with the power to help restore its ecosystem, and about the magic of seeing a wolf in the wild.
