‘ A famously far-ranging gray wolf is found dead in Southern California ‘

“ Wildlife officials say a far-ranging gray wolf, the first to tromp across Southern California in more than a hundred years, has been found dead near a roadway a little more than an hour's drive north of downtown Los Angeles.

It appeared to have been struck by a vehicle.

The male wolf, named OR93 when it was outfitted with a GPS collar by wildlife officials in its home state of Oregon, left its pack near Mount Hood two years ago. It gained followers and fans in the wildlife community as it traveled south, crossing interstates and highways to parts of California that hadn't seen a wolf since 1922. “

I found some wolf tracks on my Oregon place a few winters ago, believed to be from OR93.

That's very sad. OR93 gave it a good try.

I saw a coyote late one night some years ago in an urban SoCal area that, if I didn't know it to be impossible, would SWEAR it was a wolf. This thing was H-U-G-E. I still harbor a tiny belief that it was, in fact, a wolf.



It is what it is.

Coyotes aren't "that" big.
